    Pinocchio Cockaigne/Pleasure Island "Soda Trees" Concept Art (Walt Disney, 1940). The job to turn Collodi's novel, The Adventures of Pinocchio, into an animated film came to the story adaptation team of Ted Sears, Otto Englander, Webb Smith, William Cottrell, Joseph Saber, Erdman Penner, and Aurelius Battaglia. The early story kept in Collodi's section about Pinocchio exploring the mythical land of Cockaigne. This is the land the Brothers Grimm called Schlaraffen Land. This is a rare very early studio concept/story artwork showcasing an early rendition of Pinocchio and the boys in a Pleasure Island setting. Early work called it Booby Land. Graphite with detailed colored highlights on this 10" x 8" paper panel. It looks like an all-the-soda-you-can drink party! This is very early concept development artwork, rarely seen; notice the very early design of Pinocchio! Pinholes in corners. Minor handling and edge wear. Good condition.
