Bunnies and Birds

I don't know who Bunny Gough is. He -- or she -- shares writing credits with Bill Turner on this cartoon. Otherwise there's nothing about Bunny on the IMDb or anyplace else on the Internet.

It's a pity, because this is a pretty good cartoon with a sharp opening. It also has a particularly good score by Winston Sharples, with a couple of songs and good musical cues. Mr. Sharples had a long history in scoring. He is probably best remembered for the scores he did for the Vasn Beuren reissues of Chaplin silents in the 1930s, but he worked well into the 1960s and the final collapse of what had been the Fleischer Brothers' studio and later Famous Studios.
