    Ali Baba Bunny Concept Painting (Warner Brothers, 1957). "MINE, MINE, MINE...I can't help it! I'm a greedy slob! It's my hobby! I'm rich! I'm a happy miser!" screams Daffy Duck in this classic Chuck Jones-directed and Mike Maltese-written cartoon. Released on 2/5/57, this classic Bugs and Daffy short was voted the 35th best cartoon of all time in Jerry Beck's The 50 Greatest Cartoons. The dynamite art direction in this film comes from Maurice Noble, who also handled layout. This is a rare thumbnail of the entrance to the cave with all of the hidden treasure. It is painted on paper measuring 8" x 5". It is likely a color test painting. Here in this preliminary artwork, the vault is colored green, while in the film it is colored pink. A wonderful look into the mind of one of the greats, still very much admired to this day - the incomparable Maurice Noble. In Fine condition. From the Maurice Noble Archives.
