A Great Lounsbery Scene

John Lounsbery animated this hilarious moment from The Jungle Book. Colonel Hathi prevents the Bugler elephant from sounding the alarm prematurely. 
Bugler forms the instrument with his trunk, and responds to Hathi:"Yes, sir!" He then blows the "horn" before Hathi's trunk blocks the air flow. What a crazy idea to have the now trapped air backfiring, filling up Bugler's cheeks. At he end they deflate with a silly sound effect, his ears wiggling. 
Great drawing, great timing, great comedy, (before the gag was re-used in Robin Hood).
I love the way Louns works with all that loose flesh during squash and stretch.

Everyone of these drawings is priceless.
