    Bob Doerfler-Themed Studio Gag Drawings Original Art Group of 6 (Warner Brothers, c. 1940s). Bucktoothed, chain-smoking staffer Bob "Dorf" Doerfler in the Chuck Jones unit was the subject of many a gag drawing by artists at "Termite Terrace," the run-down building where animators were housed. Here's a group of six original gag drawings on 12 field animation paper by various hands, all featuring happy-go-lucky Dorf. Art is in graphite and/or red pencil, some with red, green, or blue pencil highlights; one is dated October 11, 1944. Good to Very Good condition, with handling and edge wear.
