Daffy Duck Shoes

Aren’t these attractive? Almost everyday some rare oddball piece of vintage cartoon memorabilia or ephemera shows up on Facebook or in my email box. It never seems to end… and each piece raises more questions than answers. Case in point: this pair of Daffy Duck slippers (above) and the super-cool off-model shoe box (below).

Warners art mega collector Eric Calande sent me these images – the latest additions to his superb Looney Tunes collection. I’m guessing it’s from the late 1940’s or early 1950’s – as Charlie Dog is featured as one of the characters and he didn’t appear until 1947. Man, Bugs Bunny looks like he’s eaten too many carrots. And the Daffy slippers – they’re despicable (but I want ’em)!
