    Ali Baba Bunny Concept Art by Maurice Noble (Warner Brothers, 1957). "I'm rich... I'm a happy miser!" Daffy Duck utters those famous words in this classic Chuck Jones-directed short, which also stars Bugs Bunny with Hassam and the Genie of the Lamp. Written by Mike Maltese, this short was released on 2/9/57. This is an outstanding concept/layout painting of "Pismo Beach" as featured at the end of the short, where Bugs opens a clam and finds a pearl; at that point, a miniature Daffy comes running out screaming "MINE MINE MINE! This very colorful concept piece, signed by artist Maurice Noble, is matted with an opening of 8" x 7" and framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 18.5" x 16.5". Jerry Beck's book, The 50 Greatest Cartoons: As Selected by 1,000 Animation Professionals, lists this short at #35. Fine condition.
