From Burbank To Washington D.C.

Amid Amidi of Cartoon Brew recently posted on the vintage 1956 short 90 Day Wondering, one of three shorts that Chuck Jones and the talented folks at Warner Bros. did for the U.S. government. Jones certainly didn’t slag off on these rarely screened shorts. Meant to encouraging Army vets to stay enlisted, this one has the same appealing quality and craftsmanship as the theatrical W.B. shorts. Some of fanciful background art that Maurice Noble created here is beautifully done.

Friday Fun

Christopher had the day off work today, so we decided to head out to Scottsdale and Tempe for some outdoor fun. Our first stop was Desert Botanical Gardens. This place is a a total snowbird tourist magnet, but it’s also a Phoenix area institution that reminds us of the beautiful flora and fauna that can still be found around here. C. had free passes, which included a special butterfly exhibit. The butterflies were great, and several of them were oddly attracted to my green shirt. After the gardens, we went thrift shopping and I found a set of small brown melamine bowls for my secret project. Then it was lunch at our favorite Mexican eatery in the area, La Fonda (a place that has stood in the same Scottsdale strip mall since I was a wee one!). We then drove to nearby Tempe to view the lake pouring water into the Salt River, and an exhibit on Chuck Jones at the Tempe Center for the Arts. The Jones exhibit was fantastic. It was mostly paintings and cericels from Jones’ personal collection, along with pencil drawings and other wonderful artifacts from the Warner Bros. cartoon vaults. A nice day — now I’m exhausted!
