THE BLACK CAULDRON
MONDO Poster Art for OH MY DISNEY show by Francesco Francavilla
The SHow opened 15 min ago so I can finally reveal my contribution to the Mondo/Disney gallery: THE BLACK CAULDRON.
ScreenPrint is 24x36”, not sure on the print run and pricing yet. If there will be leftovers from the show, Mondo is gonna put them online.

I’m having traditional 2D animation nostalgia feels. Exposure sheets, little timing charts, flipping animation papers…
Did you guys know that carrots are actually bad for rabbits? They’re too high in sugar and can lead to tooth decay and other serious health defects in our furry little friends. So why did Bugs Bunny eat them all the time? Because of Clark Gable, that’s why.
The reference might not seem so obvious to us know, but when Bugs first appeared in theaters over seventy years ago the audience immediately understood that when Bugs ate a carrot and talked with his mouth full; he was parodying Clark Cable in Frank Capra’s It Happened One Night (1934).
It turns out that, according to Friz Freleng’s unpublished memoirs, that It Happened One Night was one the animators favorite films and that at least three characteristics of Bugs Bunny are based on the film. Besides Clark Gable inspiring Bugs’ carrot addiction; his personality was based on Oscar Shapely, a minor character in the film who consistently referred to Gable as Doc. Not only that, the famous Rabbit was named after Bugs Dooley; an imaginary character mentioned in the film.
Sure, It Happened One Night is considered to be one the best romantic comedies of all time, and it might have been directed by Frank Capra, who’s arguably the greatest American film director ever; but this might be one of those rare cases where the parody has outlived the original reference.
Will Smith recognized the cameraman!
