In Searching for Freedom After the Civil War: Klansman, Carpetbagger, Scalawag, and Freedman, G. Ward Hubbs uses a stark and iconic political cartoon to illuminate postwar conflicts over the meaning of freedom in the American South. The cartoon first appeared in the Tuskaloosa Independent Monitor, published by local Ku Klux Klan boss Ryland Randolph, as a swaggering threat aimed at three individuals. Hanged from an oak branch clutching a carpetbag marked “OHIO” is the Reverend Arad S. Lakin, the Northern-born incoming president of the University of Alabama. Swinging from another noose is Dr. Noah B. Cloud - agricultural reformer, superintendent of education, and deemed by Randolph a “scalawag” for joining Alabama’s reformed state government. The accompanying caption, penned in purple prose, similarly threatens Shandy Jones, a politically active local man of color. Using a dynamic and unprecedented approach that interprets the same events through four points of view, Hubbs artfully unpacks numerous layers of meaning behind this brutal two-dimensional image.The four men associated with the cartoon - Randolph, Lakin, Cloud, and Jones - were archetypes of those who were seeking to rebuild a South shattered by war. Their lives, but especially their four very different understandings of freedom, help to explain many of the conflicts of the 1860s.General listeners of this highly accessible volume will discover fascinating new insights about life during and after America’s greatest crisis.The audiobook is published by University Press Audiobooks."Well-written and thoroughly researched. Its ambitious dissection of the manifold concept of freedom is illuminating and rewarding." (The Alabama Review)“A marvelously original approach for studying Reconstruction.” (George C. Rable, author of God’s Almost Chosen Peoples) 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gary Roelofs. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/129957/bk_acx0_129957_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
Tex Avery, considered the father of screwball animation, was one of the most influential animators of the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s. Creator of such classic characters as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and Droopy, he directed many cartoons for Warner Bros., MGM, and Walter Lantz Productions and was nominated for six Academy Awards. Avery did much of his groundbreaking work in Hollywood, running the famous "Termite Terrace" animation studio. There, with a team that included fellow innovators Chuck Jones and Bob Clampett, Avery developed an animation style based on the idea that the artist could do anything in a cartoon and didn't need to base it in reality. Although Avery was blind in one eye, he did not let it hold him back. Known for his inventiveness and comic timing, he forged a legacy that influences animators today. Tex Avery: Hollywood's Master of Screwball Cartoons illustrates this animation pioneer's life, his inspiration, and his lasting effect on the animation world. 1. Language: English.

A must for any fan of the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon characters! His voice can be heard in countless classic animated cartoons, still seen on TV daily around the world. He was Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, Quick Draw McGraw, Baba Looey, Super Snooper, Blabbermouse, Snagglepuss, Augie Doggy, Mr. Jinks, Wally Gator, Elroy Jetson, Cap'n Crunch, and hundreds of others. He worked with nearly every major animation director, including Messers Hanna and Barbera, Jay Ward, Walter Lantz, Chuck Jones, and Tex Avery. He worked puppets for Bob Clampett (Beany and Cecil). Fans included Groucho, Harpo, Lionel Barrymore, and even Albert Einstein. His collaborations with satirist Stan Freberg sold millions of records. Yet you have probably never heard of him. His name is Daws Butler. Daws Butler, Characters Actor brings you up close and personal into the life of the man who many consider to be the greatest voice actor of the 20th century. This audio biography is narrated by Daws Butler protégé Joe Bevilacqua (Joe Bev), who co-wrote the book with Ben Ohmart. Joe Bev also demonstrates many of Daws' character voices along the way. This authorized biography includes detailed eye-witness accounts and personal reminisces by his colleagues. Best of all, the book includes the words of Daws Butler himself telling his own story. How did Daws create the voice of Huckleberry Hound? What did comedian Bert Lahr think of Snagglepuss? Who made the first Cecil puppet? What was the Daws Butler Workshop? What was it like having Yogi Bear as a dad? "Is there any question the name Daws is plural? No single human being could have created so many amusingly convincing voices as did the talented, singularly plural Daws Butler. For Daws, the term 'genius' must perforce be exponentially multiplied: voices times voices times voices, and so on. I am flattered and honored that he based Fibber Fox on me." Shelley Berman, actor (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Stand 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joe Bevilacqua. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/blak/009270/bk_blak_009270_sample.mp3.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Rabbit Rampage is a 1955 Bugs Bunny animated cartoon, directed by Chuck Jones and produced by Warner Bros. Cartoons, which originally aired on June 11, 1955. It is a spiritual successor to Duck Amuck, in which Daffy Duck was teased by an off-screen artist, revealed at the end to be Bugs Bunny. In Rabbit Rampage, Bugs is similarly teased by another off-screen artist, later revealed to be Elmer Fudd. The cartoon inspired a 1993 video game for the Super NES, Bugs Bunny Rabbit Rampage, which allows the player to control Bugs Bunny and follows a similar plot. A few clips from this short were shown in a trailer for the Looney Tunes Golden Collection: Volume 1 DVD set (seen on the Looney Tunes: Back in Action DVD), but was not included as part of that set. The complete short was released, uncut and restored, on DVD on the Volume 6 set of the series as a "bonus" cartoon.
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Wackiki Wabbit is a 1943 Warner Bros. Merrie Melodies cartoon, starring Bugs Bunny. It was written by Tedd Pierce and directed by Chuck Jones. Voices were provided by Mel Blanc, Tedd Pierce (the tall, thin man), and Michael Maltese (the short, fat man - their appearances are rough caricatures of the actual men). The musical score was conducted by Carl Stalling.Wackiki Wabbit is notable for its experimental use of strongly graphic, nearly abstract backgrounds. The title is a double play on words, with "Wackicki" suggesting both the island setting (as in "Waikiki") as well as suggesting "wacky" (crazy) along with the usual Elmer Fudd speech pronuncation of "rabbit", although Elmer does not appear in this picture.
