    The very bottom quote I have is froma Davis toon. He seemed, as the fourth director, to work in the inferior Cnecolor process,though Technicolor&copy did the prints.

    He did a lot of very funny cartoons with a always on-top Daffy. animated by Emery Hawkins largely, or by Basil Davidovich.Rocky and Bullwinkle's Bill Scott & Lloyd Turner wrote a lot of these.

    Cartoons hadalsoPorky Pig in a couple of solos,beginning with Mr.Davis's first, "Mouse Menace"(1946), and some one shots-"A Hick, A Slick and a Chick: quoted below, with Stan Freberg,Mel Blanc and Bea Benadaret, and someone doing Jimmy Durante's voice, "Dough Ray Meow",about a dumb cat inheriting money and awiseguy Brooklyn parrot's attempt to getit next,and he does..and "Bone Sweet Bone" about a dog trying to get a mueseum dinosaur bone back.

    Davis started at Columbia and later wound up Friz Freleng's main animator, and worked at Hanna-Barbera and DePatie-Freleng, and had odd ways of posing characters.

    Art Davis,b.New York, 1904, died, May 9,2002.

    Underrated director, Bowery Bugs and Stupor Salesman were classics. Later he directed the show Foofur for H-B.
