In this edition, Friz Freleng returns, Treg Brown gets a new cutting room, and bios of John Burton, animator Bobe Cannon, painter Betty Brenon and inker Marjorie Dakin.

  • Sounds as if Avery may have gotten the inspiration for “Screwball Football” from Bob Canon’s tale of trying to tackle the fullback.

  • Freleng would direct both Merrie Melodies and Looney Tunes when he returned.
    I heard Bugs Hardaway left the studio and moved to Lantz because he got demoted to story once Freleng returned and took over his unit.
