Image of the Day: Transylvania 6-5000


"Well, I am a little fat-ee-gued," yawns Bugs Bunny as he slips into a slumber in Count Bloodcount's castle in this 1963 short animated film by Chuck Jones.  "Transylvania 6-5000" flew into theaters (on bat wings) on November 30, 1963 (after Jones had left the studio to head up MGM's animation department.)

Vampire movies are the 'it' monster movies these days, thrilling audiences with their chilling ways (talk about sang-froid!)  In 1963 Chuck Jones directed Transylvania 6-5000 spoofing the genre that had its teeth sunk into audiences over 40 years ago.  Here for your delectation we have Count Bloodcount, an original layout drawing by Chuck Jones (graphite and mixed media on 12 field animation paper.)
