Friz Freleng Blog-A-Thon."Welcome to the Friz Freleng Blog-A-Thon, in celebration of the late animation master's 100th (or is it 101st, or 102nd?) birthday," writes Brian Darr. "I hope I have something to contribute to a discussion of cartoons, if only an expression of my passionate belief that the best are as essential as the acknowledged great works of the cinema." He does. After arguing that Freleng has been underappreciated as an animator, Brian offers a close reading of "High Diving Hare" before, of course, gathering links at the bottom of the post to the dozen or so participants in the Blog-A-Thon so far.
