Catalogue Note

The present sketch was created as a gift for Williams around the time that he presented Jones with his Academy Award (1996).  The cartoon depicts Daffy Duck speaking to a bird on a branch, with the following caption written above: "Look, Robin, I know that asking you to introduce Chuck at the Academy is a sacrifice--but think of Sydney Carton, think of Damon, think of Runyon." Below, Tweety Bird's caption reads: "Daffy! Daffy! You've got the wong wobin!"
