Egghead Rides Again
Here’s a 1937 Merrie Melodies cartoon from Warner Brothers that introduced Egghead, sort of a forerunner to Elmer Fudd. Tex Avery (listed in the credits as Fred Avery) directed the short, with an uncredited Mel Blanc supplying the vocals for Egghead. Blanc had already done the vocals for Porky Pig but hadn’t yet brought us Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck or Barney Rubble. The cowpokes out in Wahoo, Wyoming, are actually played by the singing group: Sons of the Pioneers. More from the OldHorseman.
