BLITZ WOLF (MGM, !94s)
This 1942 cartoon was Tex Avery's second at MGM after leaving Warner Bros. It opens with a send-up of Disney's THREE LITTLE PIGS. Here's is a splendid (digitally recreated) pan background. As usual, I've added right and left halves so you can enjoy a closer look at the details.
This digitally recreated vertical pan has some interesting gags - including the play on the MGM logo at the top and the "sausage swastica" near the bottom. Remember, political correctness was unheard of in the early 40s...
Here is another lavish digitally recreated pan B/G. This time I have broken it into three parts for detail.
