Virgil Ross - Original Color Pencil Drawing featuring a very frustrated Bugs Bunny and a delighted Angus McRory playing golf (Warner Bros., undated).

In this Chuck Jones-directed classic from 1948, Bugs Bunny destroys a Scotsman's bagpipes and ends up challenging him at golf.

The art is rendered in colored pencil on a 12.5" x 10.5" sheet of animation paper and is in fine condition. Bugs measures 8" inches tall and the drawing is signed by Virgil Ross in the lower right.

These beautiful Ross drawings are highly sought after by Warners collectors, and are becoming increasingly difficult to find. They retailed in galleries for over $2000.00 in the late 1990's.

Virgil Ross began his animation career with the Winkler Studios in the late 1920s, then went on to Ub Iwerks, where he rose from the rank of in-betweener to animator and worked with Tex Avery. In 1935, Ross and Avery left Ub Iwerks and joined Warner Bros. where they created the first Bugs Bunny animated short, “A Wild Hare” in 1940, which brought Bugs his first Oscar nomination.

In 1942, after stints with other Warner Bros. directors such as Chuck Jones and Bob Clampett, Ross began a long career with Friz Freleng’s unit, where he animated over 230 cartoons, many of which were nominated for Oscars.

Four Ross-animated cartoons won Oscars: “Tweety Pie” (1947), “Speedy Gonzales” (1955), “Birds Anonymous” (1957), and “Knighty Knight Bugs” (1958). “Knighty Knight Bugs” was Bugs Bunny’s only Oscar-winning performance.

Known for bringing personality into the characters he animated, Ross’ style is said to be one of the finest examples of personality animation in the world. Ross, who died in 1996, had said his favorite animation effort was “Rhapsody Rabbit,” in which he played some of the cartoon’s classical music and honky-tonk tunes.
