Here’s something I’ve never seen before, a 1941 pressbook for Warner Bros. Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies shorts. I’m a nut for stuff like this. Click thumbnails below for larger images. Look at those posters and standees (I’m proud to say I have both one sheets, framed, on my walls). This was certainly the first big push for Bugs Bunny — and to target this sort of publicity to exhibitors indicates that Warners knew they had a new star in their hands.
This item was sold on ebay yesterday. If the buyer is reading this — (hint, hint) — I’d love to get hi-rez scans for my new Looney Tunes book.
