    Description

    Claws For Alarm Concept Drawings Group of 3 (Warner Brothers, 1954). In the book,The Noble Approach - Maurice Noble and the Zen of Animation Design, page 50 says, "...many times Maurice's visual gags and ideas were incorporated into the film and many times weren't." This is a series of three concept design pieces for the Chuck Jones-directed short; the second in a series of three Porky Pig and Sylvester "Freight" shorts. This time, they are guests at "The Dry Gulch Hotel." While ultimately, this Noble ghost gag was not used, the terrifying mice do end up donning a bedsheet to imitate a phantom! Great Noble gag layout as well as some hotel interior design concept drawings. All three drawings are hand-signed by artist, Maurice Noble (1911 - 2001). One is on Acme 2-peghole animation paper, and the remaining two are drawn on his stash of Disney 5-peghole 12 field paper. Drawings are rendered in graphite with red highlights. Minor handling. In Very Good condition. From the Maurice Noble Archives.
