Warner cartoon legend Art Davis was a long-term animator and had an exceptionally memorable three-year run directing the studio's "D-unit" in the late '40s. We discuss Davis' history that began in the silent era as an errand boy on Mutt & Jeff; how he became the business' first assistant/inbetweener; his many years working on the strange Columbia cartoons; his suspicions of a certain studio's antisemitism; and just what makes his contributions to Looney Tunes history so fun.

Our breakdown this month: Davis' Two Gophers from Texas, which pits the genial Goofy Gophers against a contemptible conceited dog who hinges on utter derangement.
