    Little Buck Cheeser Color Model Drawing (Harmon-Ising, 1937). "OK, come on fellas, light that fuel!" An original concept/color model drawing of the mice, listening to Little Buck talk about a rocket ship to take them all to the moon. This cartoon was a nod to the Buck Rodgers film phenomenon at the time. It's an extremely rare item, from one of the first Hugh Harmon and Rudolph Ising shorts created after leaving MGM and forming their own studio. Graphite with multiple colored highlights on 12 field 2-peghole animation paper. Nice image sizes of 2" - 3" on the seven mice. Matted with an opening size of 11" x 9" and framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 18" x 15.25". Minor handling and paper toning. Fine condition.
