Discover the secrets of how America’s favorite cartoons pioneered a new kind of animated humor in The Art of Warner Bros. Cartoons exhibition created by the Museum of Modern Art, New York, N.Y., opening on January 25 and running through March 23, 2014. Learn about the creative process that gave birth to Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Wile E. Coyote, and their comrades, and turned these entertaining animated short films into a cultural phenomenon. The exhibition focuses on each step of the animation process and how it contributed to the overall success of the cartoon. From camera movements and musical cues, to witty dialogue and expressive drawings, each step of the process was perfected to convey the attitudes and charm of the characters.
