    Description

    Dr. Seuss' The Cat in the Hat Concept Sketch (DePatie - Freleng, 1971). What a dream team! Ted Geisel (aka Dr. Seuss), Friz Freleng, Chuck Jones, and Maurice Noble all worked on this Cat in the Hat TV Special. Maurice Noble was in charge of production design and art direction. Altogether, Mr. Noble worked on five different Dr. Seuss animated TV Specials. This is an original Maurice Noble-drawn character design/concept art drawing of the Cat in the Hat as a coal miner and as a train conductor. Art is in ink and gouache on 3-peghole animation paper. Great images measure at 6" tall. This wonderful design artwork is hand-signed by Mr. Noble (1911 - 2001). This is some of the most unique Dr. Seuss-style artwork ever to appear on the market! Minor handling. In Very Good condition. From the Maurice Noble Archives.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
