Number 1319: Beany and Cecil and the big blue brute

Jack Bradbury, the cartoonist-animator, drew this story of Beany and Cecil. The characters were originally hand puppets created by Bob Clampett, starring in their own early television show.

If I had to name a favorite cartoonist, Bradbury's name would be at the top of the mix. His work on B&C really showcase his amazing inking and drawing. Great post, Pap!
