According to Chase Craig, who later wrote and drew the first Bugs Bunny comic Sunday pages and the first Bugs comic book, “Bugs was not the creation of any one man; however, he rather represented the creative talents of perhaps five or six directors and many cartoon writers. In those days, the stories were often the work of a group who suggested various gags, bounced them around and finalized them in a joint story conference. ” A rabbit with some of the personality of Bugs, though looking very different, was originally featured in the film Porky’s Hare Hunt, released on April 30, 1938. It was co-directed by Ben “Bugs” Hardaway and an uncredited Cal Dalton (who was responsible for the initial design of the rabbit). This cartoon has an almost identical plot to Avery’s Porky’s Duck Hunt (1937), which had introduced Daffy Duck. Porky Pig is again cast as a hunter tracking a silly prey who is more interested in driving his pursuer insane and less interested in escaping. Hare Hunt replaces the little black duck with a small white rabbit. The rabbit introduces himself with the odd expression “Jiggers, fellers,” and Mel Blanc gave the character a voice and laugh much like those he would later use for Woody Woodpecker. The rabbit character was popular enough with audiences that the Termite Terrace staff decided to use it again. According to Friz Freleng, Hardaway and Dalton had decided to dress the duck in a rabbit suit. The white rabbit had an oval head and a shapeless body. In characterization, he was “a rural buffoon”. He was loud, zany with a goofy, guttural laugh. Blanc provided him with a hayseed voice.
That goes to show that the images on the books should be simple to relate with and identify. In addition, stick to books that have easy coloring pages, which have well-spaced images for sample coloring and ensure you have enough crayon and coloring pencils to for all. You can have two kids on a book each taking a turn to color an image. It is a great way of teaching them the values of sharing. Everyone from the harried parent to party hosts have found coloring to be a wonderful activity to engage the children in, and since the advent of many wonderful technologies such as the computer, internet and the printer we have gained access to the world of printable coloring pages. At any point in time from the early morning to late at night a child can get on the internet and look for printable coloring pages to keep themselves entertained. Wild and woolly weather outside and nothing for the kids to do how about kid coloring pages. All children love to color in and its much better for them to color on a piece of paper than on your walls or floors. Most children love to display their work but sometimes computer paper can be quite expensive when children are young and only put one or two lines on the page and then say they are finished. There are cheaper alternatives to computer paper and give just as much if not more enjoyment to your child but also utilise both sides of the paper twice the amount of time on one piece of paper.
