A Very Merry Cricket: Background Art

Keeping up with the Christmas theme, may I share with you some screen grabs of Chuck Jones' 1973 television special "A Very Merry Cricket", which was itself a sequel to "The Cricket in Time Square".People of New York seem to have forgotten the Christmas spirit so Harry Cat and Tucker Mouse head off to the country to find help from their old friend, Chester C. Cricket, who once before calmed the citizens with soothing music.You can find this classic special among other Chuck Jones Productions animated shows on The Chuck Jones Collection DVD from Lionsgate.

The ending of this special always gets to me a little since it takes on such a abrupt shift in style and approach.
