Greg, in the Page Miss Glory picture, could the first unknown caricature be Virgil Ross? It looks a bit like the photo of him in front of Termite Terrace in various books.

Got another one for "Speaking of the Weather."

At the 5:32 mark (just before 'Vengeance of the In Betweeners), there is a Crime Magazine reading "(s)haping of H. Soldinger. Harold Solinger was at Schlesinger (as an in betweener, I think).

In the picture of HARE DO you posted, if you looked at the picture on the restored DVD, you'll find it reads 'Soap' and not 'Soup.' I don't think you can buy a box of soup anyway, can you? :)

In the street scene at the 3:43 mark, between Hadley and Pert's Men's Wear and Batchelder's House of Music, there's also Marron Insurance. Paul Marron was an assistant animator. Next to Hadley and Pert's is Champ's Bar and Grill, named for animator Ken Champin. Above the Champ's sign, a window reads 'Virgil Ross' (I think it says 'Dentist' below the name; it's hard to tell with this zoom feature).

The main 'BACKWASH' poster also reminds us that film was a Sid Farren production. Sid was another assistant animator. The poster next to it for another movie contains the name 'Chiniquy' for Gerry.

In "Ballot Box Bunny" (Freleng, 1951) there a scene where Sam is pounding on the door, demanding it be opened. After saying "open the door" several times, he "turns to the camera" and says something to the effect of "did ya notice I didn't say Richard?" I believe this is a reference to the 1947 song "Open the Door, Richard"... http://www.alsimmons.com/lyrics/cl_openthedoor.html

Forgive me on the details, I'm going off memory for this one.

Looney Tunes sign On the right side behind the woman there is a faint sign which I can read most of: "Looney Tunes, the Supreme ??? ??? World".

I find that if I open the image in PS and turn it negative it reads " Supreme of the world."
I use this technique for stubborn images alot.

In "Wagon Heels" (Clampett, 1945, starring Porky Pig) there are a couple of cameos. First, in the wagon train, if you slow the cartoon down you will see caricatures of Clampett himself (first seat), then either Ray Katz or Friz Freleng, and then two other caricatures in the dining car. In another scene, as Injun Joe walks by a line of trees, his footfalls causing each one to pop out of the ground then sink back in, take a look at the nest in each tree. I tawt I taw a Tweety Bird!

It seems you forgot to add another gag from "Porky's Railroad" from 1937. After Porky pulled on the bull's tail while calling him a "four-legged piece of hamburger" (thinking it was the cow from earlier), he says some gibberish. Reversed, the gibberish goes like "C'mon, Toots ol' gal. Don't pop your b-b-b-b...". Just wanted to point this out. <:)

I don't have an image or audio to prove it, though.

In "Ballot Box Bunny", I noticed that Josiah Freep rhymes with Uriah Heep, the Charles Dickens Character.
