Here's the later ugly Boo Boo with the inverted curves at the sides of his cranium.
All the cuteness is gone.

I like purple tie Booboo best.

Wow I really wish I could get my hands on a higher-resolution copy of that yogi model sheet. And frame it on a wall. It's so awesome it hurts.

I remember that article about Ed from when I was in school. I must have read it dozens of times.
That I did have on a wall for quite a while.

John, I know this is off topic, but I figured you would be the best person to ask. I've loved THE OLD GRAY HARE for years and noted that the story is credited to Michael Sassonoff, who only (officially) boarded two other Warner cartoons. Do you know anything about him?
Thanks if you do.

Wow...BooBoo even has amazing inbetweens! Drawings are so much more fun when they're asymmetrical

Those model sheets (except the last one) are a work of art.

Those Pie Pirates are my favorite versions. The most appealling and cute Yogi and Boo Boo.
