    The Keystone Kops Character Development and Concept Drawings Group of 24 (Warner Brothers, 1969). In 1969, during the final days of Warner Brothers animated theatrical shorts when characters such as Cool Cat, Bunny and Claude, and others were brought to the big screen, Warner Brothers-Seven Arts purchased the animated rights to the Keystone Kops. This is a series of 24 original character development and model sheet drawings of the animated Keystone Kops which was overseen by director Robert McKimson. Sadly, the studio's animation division shut down in 1969, and this cartoon was never made. These drawings are believed to be the only ones ever produced for this proposed animated series and come directly from the Estate of Robert McKimson (1910 - 1977). A letter from his estate comes with the artwork. Please note this is a large group of drawings. Minor handling and edge wear. Overall condition is Very Good. From the Robert McKimson Archives.
