Shamus Culhane - The Painter and the Pointer

Okay, before this becomes the "Disney Comics and Friends Blog", let's take a look at a really incredible Culhane Lantz cartoon from 1944.

This is really an eerily staged and written thing, what with a horribly designed (used only for this cartoon) Andy Panda rigging his dog to a shotgun. You can really see Culhane harking back to his Disney days, with the dog's design being a direct steal of Pluto.

The spiders are beautifully insane characters, attempting to hoist the petrified dog up into the tree to feast on. (The last minute or so is almost entirely animated by Emery Hawkins.)
