"The rootinest, tootinest hombre this side of the Pecos" was created by director Isadore "Friz" Freleng for his l945 Merrie Melodies cartoon Hare Trigger. Generally considered to be the two-dimensional alter-ego of Freleng. Sam took on several different guises throughout his career including pirate and jailhouse guard, but it is his bellowing western blowhard character for which he is most famous. This model sheet is based on original Studio art of the short-tempered gunslinger. In the world of animation, a model sheet is a collection of drawings of a specific character used to show his varying attitudes and characteristics. This limited edition cel began with a drawing by Dan Haskett from which a master inking was created by Laurie Dindis. This inking was then silk-screened onto an acetate sheet (or "cel") along with the Warner Bros. seal. Each cel was then expertly hand-painted on the reverse side. The background is a high-quality lithograph composed of several different poses of Yosemite Sam created by Dan Haskett in a model sheet format. The edition number was hand-inked on each cel in a special edition size of only 350. Upon completion of the edition, the original artwork was archived.
