The Aracuan Bird

Yep. I'm back again! I just got a job a few months ago, so I haven't been able to post as often as I would like to. Here's something just for the sake of something new.

One of my favorite Disney characters is the rare Aracuan Bird featured in two classic Donald Duck shorts, Clown of the Jungle (1947), and a segment on Melody Time called Blame it on the Samba (1948) where in both shorts is voiced by the great Pinto Colveg. I love this guy because there's definitely some Tex Avery influence on him. It's a shame that he didn't come back for more shorts than this since he's such a fun character. Below is a model sheet form Blame it on the Samba and the cartoon, Clown of the Jungle.
