Here is my ugly poster of "The Bear That Wasn't".

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BybT9CHrU1eqT2k0MXJRNEZNRkU/edit?usp=sharing

Wow, that's great! I had an idea for a poster for that cartoon as well though.
Happy Holidays, everyone!

Yeesh, that was...bizarre. The legs look like ten-gallon hats. I can't even tell which side of Tom's head has his face!

(By the way, if you want non-users to see the poster, you will have to share it somehow. Attachments, unfortunately, can only be seen by users. And another thing--is the mention of OFCOM supposed to be a reference to how the original titles to Texas Tom were found on a British IB Tech print? Or is it for Mouse Cleaning?)

Partly due to the British IB Tech print, but mostly this execrpt of Nightline:

It was a big topic in the animation community at the time.

I added Mouse Cleaning to make it more outrageous.

You would think that an ugly poster of "The Dot and the Line" was impossible...

Until now.
