Elmer Fudd in the Foreign Legion

Today's fun comes from Four Color No. 233, June 1949; an all Bugs issue co-starring the overgrown baby, Elmer Fudd. I love the composition of this typically cool four-color cover by Ralph Heimdahl; and the story art is by Disney great, Tony Strobl. Mr. Strobl helped animate Fantasia, Dumbo, and Pinocchio. He went to work for Western Publishing in 1949 and contributed his wonderful cartooning in the pages of Four Color and other comics until 1968. The last three one-page stories in this post represent the front inside, back inside, and back outside covers. The artist on all three pages is Fred Abranz.
The artist identification for this post is provided by pal, Alberto Becattini via Grand Comic Book Database. Be sure to visit Alberto's site by clicking on his name!
