Arise, Earl of Cloves!

Thad has an animation analysis of the Chuck Jones classic "Rabbit Hood."

It's based on another one of Greg Duffell's great animation analysis posts, which can be found here.

Also at Thad's site is your chance to see the 1941 Columbia cartoon "The Fox and the Grapes." Featuring WB animation talent -- director Frank Tashlin and voice artist Mel Blanc -- the cartoon's use of blackout gags (with the fox trying one unsuccessful gambit after another to get those grapes) heavily influenced all the try/fail blackout-gag cartoons that would pour out of other studios in subsequent years, especially Chuck Jones's Road Runner series.
