    Description

    Cock o' the Walk Color Model/Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1935). In this Ben Sharpsteen-directed Silly Symphony short, a prize-fighting rooster coming to town is cause for a celebration, complete with elaborate parodies of Busby Berkeley dance routines. Here we have a superb vintage drawing of seven pairs of dancing hens, rendered in graphite with elaborate color penciling on 12 field, 5-peghole animation paper. You can spot this at the 2:49 mark. One of "Walt's Nine Old Men," Eric Larson (1905 - 1988), supervised the animation of the gossiping and dancing hens outside the ring. This WOW drawing has an overall image area of approximately 11" x 7". The number 248 is written in the lower right corner. Mild paper toning with minor handling and edge wear. Very Good condition.
