"Do you want to buy a duck" is my new pick-up line.Good stuff.
What is that line from? I've heard 'Do you want to buy a duck" in a lot of Warner shorts too. Where does that and 'Don't ever do that' come from?- trevor.
I love the animation where she's punch drunk on passion.Looks like you CAN fool a girl from Waikiki.- trevor.
Hi Trevor,I don't know much about him, but I believe Joe Penner is responsible for the "Wanna buy a duck?" sales pitch.Here's a website devoted to Penner (found via Mark Kausler's site):WANNA BUY A DUCK?The website also notes that Penner may have been the original inspiration for Egghead (Elmer Fudd's pre-cursor)...Marc
Thanks for this post! Gave me an idea......
great stuff!hey--a bit off topic...I'm a high school senior who is probably going to end up at CalArts doing experimental animation next fall. Any general advice?
I've heard 'Do you want to buy a duck" in a lot of Warner shorts too.In Porky's Duck Hunt a caricature of Joe Penner himself delivers the line.
My Dad would love this! Ha. With Jack Daniels of course :)Hey John, more practice stuff for you to check out if u have time. Thx.http://www.anthonyrizzo.com-Rizzo
Hey all,This is way off topic, but I've been racking my brain (and The Google) and can't figure out the names or names of some vintage cartoons that feature characters from different books interacting in a library or on bookshelves - anybody know what I'm talking about? Thanks.
OK, it might be "Book Revue" - I had no idea Clampett did the animation on this. I always thought it was a Terrytoon or Famous studios cartoon, not Warners.
Don't doOOo that!Ha
Does anybody know the names of cartoons Clampett was sending up with "Book Revue"? I know some of them were WB Merrie Melodies, but I need some help with titles.
hahahah that goodbye is very recognizable!ahahaahahfunny stuff!thanks John**** hey, I put in my blog some studies of cartoos of the 30s, come to see them! ********
I love how the limbs on the girl go from solid to rubber! They're really fun, especially when she gets picked up.The poses she makes are really fun too.
Payo,The first such books/products coming to life cartoon at Warner Bros. was Three's a Crowd (by Rudolf Ising c. 1933). Others that followed were I Like Mountain Music (by Friz Freleng c. 1933), How Do I Know It's Sunday? (by Friz Freleng c. 1934), Billboard Frolics (by Friz Freleng c. 1936), Speaking of the Weather (by Frank Tashlin c. 1937), September in the Rain (by Friz Freleng c. 1937), Have You Got Any Castles (by Frank Tashlin c. 1938), You're An Education (by Frank Tashlin c. 1938), and Goofy Groceries (by Bob Clampett c. 1941). But, yeah, the topper of them all was indeed Bob Clampett's Book Revue.I guess you could also include Wholly Smoke (by Frank Tashlin c. 1938) into that list as well.
Hi John,I've been referring to Blog for sometime now, mostly to keep my sanity, in the industry.Chuck (Gammage) and I just finished a promo with Rex and the Gang:http://coldhardflash.com/2008/02/mason-squeezes-out-kid-man-and-lemon-promo.htmlI hope you enjoy it.I would love to interview Fred Crippen, his editing (on Roger Ramjet) was as progressive as the French New Wave films.But no one will recognize that because it's just a cartoon.Hmmn it's shame.bye
John,It was great to meet you (last night at the thing for Uli Meyer at Tangier). Give me a call anytime you want to come by and see the glorious DCP campus.John
Thanks David-Great list and I've been able to find some of them on YouTube. I noticed Clampett lifted the cuckoo clock (and a bunch of other bits) right out of Have You Got Any Castles? (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xEF-yP9EvZg).
