Museum of Modern Art
honors Warner Bros.
NEW YORK (AP)—Ssshh. Be ve-wy quiet. You’re in
the Museum of Modem Art—and it’s wabbit season.
There they all are, cheek to fuzzy jowl on the museum’s
walls—Picasso, Van Gogh, Degas, Yosemite Sam, Foghorn
Leghorn, Daffy, Speedy, Tweety, Elmer and . . . Bugs
It’s the 50th anniversary of Warner Bros. Looney Tunes
and Merry Melodies cartoon, which combined the bite of
adult satire with childlike sight gags and belly laughs as
none before or since.
The museum is paying homage to these cartoons, recog-
nizing them as the art works they truly are, in a special
exhibit titled “That’s Not All, Folks!”
On hand for the show’s opening Tuesday were Friz
Freleng, 79, and Chuck Jones, 73—names most Bugs buffs
instantly recognize as longtime animators of the whole stable
of Warner Bros, characters. Freleng, in addition, created
the Pink Panther after Warner closed its internal animation
department in 1963. Both are doing only occasional cartoons
Their favorite? No surprise, really.
“We both favor Bugs Bunny,” said Jones. “He’s the
kind of character I’d like to be. Bugs became a sort of
male Dorothy Parker, always quick with the one-liner.
The exhibit includes early sketches from the 1930s, when
Freleng, Jones and the other underpaid, wisecracking
animators toiled unobtrusively in what they dubbed “termite
terrace,” a back-alley building on the old Warner movie
The museum exhibit shows the cartoons in their formative
stages, from pencil drafts to vivid color.
And there’s color sketches of perhaps the greatest cartoon
of all, “One Froggy Evening,” a tale of what happens to a
man who believes he has found his pot of gold in a frog
who sings “Hello, My Baby”—but only when the mood
In the golden eta of cartooning from the 1930s through
1950s, Freleng recalled, six-minute cartoons cost about
$10,000 to make. Today cartoons made with the same time,
care and skill would cost about $1,600 a second—about
care and skill would cost about »i,oou a sccuuu—a^
$360,000. That pricetag, along with the demise of the movie
double feature and short subject explains why they don t
make them like that anymore.
But a cartoon fanatic cannot live by art exhibits alone.
The museum will run uncut, uncensored Warner Bros,
cartoons Saturdays and Sundays through Jan. 26.
INDIALANTIC, Fla. (AP)—Hun-
dreds of newly hatched loggerhead sea
turtles have been rescued by a man who
said he was sick of the way they were
crushed by cars on Indialantic’s beach-
Peter Bandre of Melbourne asked state
officials for permission to remove nests
from roadside dunes and incubate the
eggs at his home.
The hatchlings usually follow light
reflecting off the water to make their
way from their nests to the surf. But
bright lights from buildings along the
beach confuse them and they wander
onto the road instead.
“I got going when the Department
of Natural Resources said they could
use all the help they could get,” Bandre
said before releasing 86 hatchlings on
the central Florida coast.
Scientists from the University of
Central Florida have reported seeing
more than 10,000 nests of eggs laid by
the 350-pound loggerhead females since
