    Description

    Toot, Whistle, Plunk and Boom Concept Paintings Group of 6 (Walt Disney, 1951). "The study of musical instruments is the subject for today" says Professor Owl in his class. This is a series of six concept paintings/color keys of various characters and instruments in this landmark animated cartoon, voted #29 in Jerry Beck's great book The 50 Greatest Cartoons. It was directed by Ward Kimball and Charles Nichols and was released on 11/10/53. It went on to win the Academy Award for best animated short. Eyvind Earle created the look of this cartoon and received screen credit as Color Stylist. The title references are Toot = Horn, Whistle = Flute, Plunk = Guitar, and Boom = Drum. They are all painted in gouache on small board measuring 2.5" x 2". Three are of instruments, and three are of characters. All are attributed to the hand of Eyvind Earle. Fine condition.
