    Description

    Sesame Street Children's Book Concept Sketch Featuring Animal (Jim Henson Publishing, 1999).
    "AUGGHHH! HALLOWEEN!" Animal yelled." Original concept pencil sketch of Animal as he discovers the location of Miss Piggy's Halloween decorations from the Muppet Lift-the-Flap Book - Muppet Manners. This piece is signed in ink by the artist Rick Brown -- longtime Sesame Street Magazine artist who, in the 1980s, became the leading artist for Muppets children's books. The overall image measures approximately 6.6" x 5.5" on an 9.5" x 7.5" sheet of tracing paper. To add to its provenance, the back of the board includes a handwritten description and an additional signature. Some handling wear; otherwise, condition is Fine. A close representation of this sketch can be found under the flap on page 7. A color copy of that page is included. This is a perfect example of Animal behaving exactly as expected. All original Muppet artwork is considered rare.
