An Original Vintage Linenbacked One-Sheet Movie Poster (1sh) (Learn More)

Batty Baseball, the 1944 Tex Avery baseball sports animated cartoon featuring the voices of Wally Maher. Note that Fred "Tex" Avery was one of the greatest legends of Hollywood animation. He started working for Walter Lantz on Oswald the Lucky Rabbit in the early 1930s. He moved to Warner Bros. in 1935, where he became a legend, working on the Merry Melodies and Looney Tunes series, creating or developing the best remembered Warner Bros. cartoon characters, including Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Bugs Bunny, and others. In 1941, after a disagreement, he briefly worked on a series called "Speaking of Animals", where real animals "talked" with animated lips, but he soon signed a contract with MGM, where he did even more wonderful work than before. He developed an entirely new type of cartoon (his MGMs are instantly recognizable as being "Tex Averys"), and they include characters such as Droopy, The Wolf, Red Hot Riding Hood, and many others. He is one of the greatest animators ever, and posters from his cartoons are difficult to obtain, and are highly sought after by collectors!
