Abstract

On April 4, 1936, just a little over thirteen months before Katherine Pynchon's blessed event in Glen Cove, Long Island, Leon Schlesinger, at "Termite Terrace" in Hollywood, released "The Blow Out," a Warner Bros. black and white Looney Tune.' These wholly unrelated events would cross paths when Mrs. Pynchon's son published The Crying of Lot 49 in 1966 and Gravity's Rainbow in 1973, alluding in each novel to this same cartoon.
