Boyhood Daze

Boyhood Daze (1957) is one of my all time favorite Chuck Jones cartoons. Except for the insanely political incorrect daydream jungle-sequence, of course. Well, the Fifties were not a time of political correctness, in fact anything but.

I rewatched it today and found out that this little gem has a lot of in it what my own work drives, too. I indeed forgot how much this very film had an influence on my own work. Besides, the uber-layout-man Maurice Noble did a beautiful job on the backgrounds, the air combat part is a masterpiece by itself. Or the beautifully presented light in the boy's room, just smashingly beauteous.
