Lake, Veronica

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on March 22, 2004


    Glamour-girl star of the 1940s, famous for her peek-a-boo over-the-eye hairstyle which she stopped wearing during World War II, because women war workers were suffering industrial accidents from long hair. Examples of her style being spoofed are in Bugs Bunny and the Three Bears (Jones, 1944) as one of the poses of Mama Bear in her wooing of Bugs, and Eatin’ on the Cuff (Clampett, 1942) in which one of the moths takes a Lake-like pose, spoiled by a protruding nose. Bodies of water (so to speak) are named after her in Crazy Cruise (Avery/Clampett, 1942) and A Lad in His Lamp (McKimson, 1948).
