    The Cat in the Hat Character Concept Art by Maurice Noble (DePatie-Freleng, 1971). Ted Geisel (aka Doctor Seuss), Friz Freleng, Chuck Jones and Maurice Noble all worked together to create this Cat in the Hat TV Special. Maurice Noble was in charge of Production Design and Art Direction for this special as well as four other Doctor Seuss animated TV specials. This is an original Maurice Noble character design/concept artwork of The Cat in the Hat in an American Gothic pose, drawn in pen and ink and gouache on 12 field 3-peghole animation paper. Great images of 6". This is some of the most unique Doctor Seuss-style artwork we have seen surface. Artwork is hand-signed by Maurice Noble (1911-2001). An amazing item. Minor handling wear; Fine condition. From the Maurice Noble Archives.
