In honor of the exhibit, I'm posting an article Wolverton wrote in 1947 for the
Daily Oregonian on the ASIFA-Hollywood Animation Archive blog. It's titled
"Acoustics in the Comics" and it deals with Wolverton's struggles to find just
the right sound-word to describe such cartoony situations as a person skidding
on a stove with bare feet or a beaver biting into a wooden leg.
