DescriptionBill Plympton The Simpsons Season 19 DVD Box Set Animation Drawings Sequence of 5 (Fox, 2019). Each disc in The Simpsons season 19 DVD box set features original animated sequences created by noted independent animator Bill Plympton that play above the episode menu. Presented is a sequence of four original drawings from the animation on Disc #3. In this looped scene, the Simpson's car hurtles through the inner workings of a dinosaur only to pass through the double doors of a dining area before exiting into a water park. Mr. Plympton's extensive catalog of work includes animation and illustration for publications such as the New York Times, Rolling Stone, and National Lampoon as well as dozens of independent animated shorts. He is one of Matt Groening's favorite animators and has produced six opening couch gags for The Simpsons television series. These five drawings are rendered in colored pencil on 12 field 3-peghole paper and two are signed by the artist in the lower right. Bill Plympton animates with drawings rather than cels, giving his work it's distinctive illustrative style and these are the actual pieces that appear on screen. This method is time intensive and requires reusing many images over and over. As a result there is far less production art used in these short vignettes making it especially rare. The pieces show minor handling and condition is Very Good.
