Chuck Jones' iconic 1953 film, "Duck Dodgers in the 24 1/2 Century" pits the intrepid Daffy Duck and his sidekick Porky Pig (Space Cadet) against a Martian named Marvin in a spoof of the very popular space opera films and radio/television serials of the period.  Maurice Noble designed the amazing background layouts for the short film (Planet X!)

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, an original production background from the 1951 Chuck Jones directed short animated cartoon, “The Wearing of the Grin” starring Porky Pig.  (Ironically, the film was released in theaters on July 14th of that year, Bastille Day.)
