ABOUT THE IMAGE: 100 nuts and a squirrel mean something here, simply because “nuts” are what nearly drives Porky nuts in the classic 1939 Looney Tunes short “Porky in Wackyland,” directed by Robert Clampett. In this image, Porky has reached darkest Africa, where with an agility by both himself and his plane, he tiptoes himself over to a world of alternate dimension, in his quest to capture the ever elusive last of the Do-Do birds.
Each cel is hand-numbered and signed Ruth Clampett, Creative Director for Warner Bros. Fine Art Program for over 20 years and the daughter of the legendary animation director, Bob Clampett.
