Friday fun post: a cartoon flea ballerina, Fifi Le Flea, from Tex Avery’s “The Flea Circus”. Including the original model sheet and painted cell from 1954.
The detail in this cartoon is interesting to note: if you slow the cartoon down, you can see the background flea dancers follow Fifi a frame or two later. The cartoonists intended this to emphasizes Fifi’s role as the “star” to the audiences, even if only subconsciously.
