Tony the Tiger

I know that Frosted Flakes are 'Grrrrreat!!!', but I never understood why Tony the Tiger looks so fit. If all he eats are Frosted Flakes shouldn't he be a chubby, hyperactive tiger? However, if you look closely you will see that he has no teeth.

I believe Johnny would say, "Whoa mama!" to the last few posts.

Cartoon Women Part III - Olive Oyl

Who better to post after Betty Boop and Red Hot Riding Hood than Olive Oyl? Popeye and Bluto couldn't resist her when she struck a pose like this.

Cartoon Women Part II - Red Hot Riding Hood

This is from the Tex Avery classic 'Red Hot Riding Hood'. You may remember it as the one where the wolf does dozens of crazy takes. (e.g. eyes popping out of his head, jaw hitting floor, etc.) Overall this turned out OK, but I'm not happy with the eyes.

Cartoon Women Part I - Betty Boop

I've never been very good at drawing female characters so I thought I'd try practicing a little. Who better to start with than Betty Boop. Betty was the first female character to be the star of her own cartoons. She was a very popular character in the 30s for the Fleischer studio.
