"You can't tell where one animator leaves off and the other begins."

56 years ago today, Rabbit Seasoning hit movie theaters for the first time. This cartoon classic is the work of Mike Maltese, (whose centennial birthday was celebrated earlier this year) a cartoon writer whose work is arguably far more well known than his name, having brought the world works such as One Froggy Evening, What's Opera Doc?, the downright surreal Duck Amuck and many others. He even makes an appearance in the live action/animation blend "You Ought To Be in Pictures" (as the security guard at 3:50). Despite his relative obscurity, Maltese downplayed his own role: "In the cartoon business, no one can take the credit for the finished product."
