Chilly Willy-"I’m Cold"

28 Sep

Here’s Tex Avery’s first Chilly Willy cartoon that he directed at Lantz Studios along with Tex Avery’s redesign of Chilly Willy. One of the things I like about Tex’s shorts at Lantz is that the characters are drawn closer to Tex’s drawing style. Check out the storyboard from another of his Chilly Willy shorts, “The Legend Of Rockabye Point” drawn by Tex. This is also the first appearance of Smedley, voiced by Daws Butler.

    <>These are awesome drawings! I never saw alot of drawings Tex did himself, they like disapeared from history from some reason and Kev found them!<>Actually these pics are easily found in “Tex Avery:King Of Cartoons” and “The Walter Lantz Story”. I just don’t think many people have taken the time to scan them and post them. Believe me if I could get my hands on stuff that I really wanted I’d be doing huge posts everyday. In fact I wish I had mountains of original layouts or at least high res scans. The one’s I have from Tex’s shorts are great and theres much to learn from them.
