Pete Burness animated this opening from THE ZOOT CAT (1944).

He worked on several of the early-mid 40s Tom & Jerrys. His style was quite conservative, with his characters jerking from pose to pose, similar to what Ed Barge would do later on. He's often described as a sloppy animator by some, particularly during his stint as an animator for Friz Freleng and Bob McKimson at Warner Bros. in the late 40s.
