A Nice Spider Goulash

The great big hunk of red shag known as Gossamer (don't you just love that John T. Smith 'Mad Scientist' monologue!?) first appeared in the Warner Brothers' short Hair-Raising Hare back in 1946. Despite making only two more classic appearances (Water, Water Every Hare [1952], and Duck Dodgers in the Return to the 24 1/2 Century [1980]), he's become a cult favourite of the Chuck Jones characters, as you can see from this bit of weirdness, and this nifty Gossamer Fansite. You can count me in as a fan.
