Two charming sketches, pasted back to back, by one of the true masters of funny animal cartooning.
Anyone interested in learning to draw "cute"---and I mean that in a good way--search down Chad's work in golden-age comics like FUNNY ANIMALS, and HOPPY THE MARVEL BUNNY (which blew Chris George's mind when I first showed it to him!)
For sheer drawing ability, no one was ever better than Alex Toth, in my opinion.
Still, I gotta wonder what the H&B animators thought of these incredibly complex character layouts Alex had come up with.
Did he really expect them to animate all this motion?
Come to think of it, I've never seen this cartoon, and maybe they did animate all this parry and thrusting.
In any event, it makes for a gorgeous layout.
