DISNEYLAND

Leslie and I are DISNEYLAND deluxe annual pass holders, and we always get our money's worth by taking numerous trips to the classic theme park. That's one of the many things we have in common...we both love DISNEYLAND! The above image is the poster for DISNEYLAND U.S.A., the Cinemascope PEOPLE AND PLACES featurette. The featurette is included on the WALT DISNEY TREASURES DVD set, DISNEYLAND: SECRETS, STORIES & MAGIC. If you're a fan of DISNEYLAND, and you haven't yet seen this terrific documentary, I highly recommend it! Click on the DISNEYLAND U.S.A. poster image for a larger view!

BUGS BUNNY STATUE

This BUGS BUNNY statue was produced in 1996 for the Warner Bros. Studio Store Collectors Guild. BUGS BUNNY is ceramic and stands almost 7" tall. I found this statue at one of the Studio Store sales that was on the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank back in 1999, for the low price of $10! What a deal for a great-looking classic BUGS BUNNY piece!

WINSOME WITCH

I did this WINSOME WITCH inking earlier today. The pose is from a WINSOME WITCH model sheet. Like the SQUIDDLY DIDDLY and CHIEF WINCHLEY inkings that I posted yesterday, this is brush, pen & ink on duralene with white opaque watercolor...and available to own. E-mail me at powsley@flash.net. Love these early HANNA-BARBERA characters! The WINSOME image area is about 4 1/4" x 8". WINSOME WITCH goes well with the Halloween season! Click on the photo for a larger view. Thanks! -- Patrick Owsley

THE THREE STOOGES COLLECTION VOL. 4 - 1943-1945

I highly recommend THE THREE STOOGES COLLECTION Vol. 4 - 1943-1945 DVD set! The set was released last week, so if you don't have it yet, be sure to pick it up soon! The set is loaded with more of the classic comedy of MOE, LARRY and CURLY! The above image of the STOOGES has nothing to do with the new DVD set. I just liked this art of the 1960s TV cartoon THREE STOOGES.
