Image of the Day: Bewitched Bunny

CJLAYOUT-234 copy

Original layout drawing by Chuck Jones for his
1954 “Bewitched Bunny”, graphite on two-hole punch 12 field animation
paper.  This drawing was used to create
the 2004 cel art edition “Bewitched Bunny—1954" seen below.  The cel has been signed by June Foray, the original voice actor.  (Correction:  Bea Benaderet voiced Witch Hazel in "Bewitched Bunny" and Ms. Foray in her subsequent cartoons.  Please see the comments.)

    Hi Thad,
    Thank you for the comment. I used Jerry Beck and Will Friedwald’s excellent “Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies, A Complete Illustrated Guide to the Warner Bros. Cartoons” as my reference (page 263, paperback, 1st edition). Although other references, specifically the Wikipedia entry for “Witch Hazel” cite Bea Benaderet as the voice Jones’ “Bewitched Bunny”, regardless, Benaderet is the favorite in most other reference material. I stand corrected. Thank you for reading the blog!
