A classic if there ever was one. The storyboard crew must have had a field day when they read the script for this. Either that or the animators were having a REALLY good day when they did the key poses. Thanks for posting this, Mike.

Well, Chuck would do all of the "character layouts" and hand them off to the animators (Ken Harris, Ben Washam, etc.) to animate it, incorporating Chuck's poses in the final animation. So all the really whacked out expressions were most likely Chuck's.

Here's an excerpt from a Chuck Jones documentary which demonstrates this. It starts at 2:20. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jfQJQTIPFG8
