Tex Avery -"Who Killed Who?"

10 Dec

Here’s some model sheets and animation drawings from Tex’s “Who Killed Who?” Somehow I highly doubt that any cartoons today would be made that revolved around a murder mystery. I think the closest thing to even mentioning murder was in “Stimpy’s Fan Club”, when Ren was losing it and was ready to take Stimpy out. Though I wish someone would murder those damn Fairy Odd Parents and the Kids Next Door. What shit. One thing I love about this cartoon, besides it being hilarious,is the soundtrack which just features just an organ. Very different from Scott Bradley’s normal work, but very fitting. By the way, buy the new Scott Bradley CD. It features liner notes by Daniel Goldmark who also wrote the great book “Tunes for Toons” which I would recommend to any fan of Carl Stalling and Scott Bradley. Sorry for the commercialism, but I just hope those CDs sell well so that maybe they’ll release more. Especially the soundtracks from the mid 40’s Tom and Jerry cartoons and mostly Iomogene Lynn singing the retooled version of “Oh Johnny Oh Johnny Oh” from Tex’s “Swing Shift Cinderella” and “Little Rural Riding Hood”. The Andrew Sisters recorded a great version of that song… if anyone finds that interesting. Enough about cartoon music, I’ll save that for another post.

    You won’t have to worry about Fairy Odd Parents anymore. I heard Nick has already finished production on it.
