i was looking at a japanese website where i saw these cute things -> which prompted me to look up "petit ours brun" -> at which point i learned it was a french cartoon. so then i ->searched for other french cartoons on youtube and found the following video (i just wanted to explain how i ended up here. i love how easy it is to end up random places on the internet.) anyway, this cartoon just exemplifies everything i love about the art of mid-century cartoons.
if you're a fan, be sure to check out Cartoon Modern Blog. I got the book for christmas - yippee!
