    Whoa Be Gone Maurice Noble Layout Drawing (Warner Brothers, 1958). This is an original early layout drawing by Maurice Noble (1911 - 2001) depicting the "Acme Do-It-Yourself Tornado Kit" from the 1958 Chuck Jones-directed short Whoa Be Gone. The 7.25" x 5.25" graphite drawing is on a 12 field, 3-peghole sheet of animation paper and has director's notes "BG. SC 48 1477" (Background scene 48) and "Rough" penciled above the image. The final look for this Tornado Kit can be seen at the 5:02 minute mark in the short. The piece is floated in a frame with a mat opening measuring 11" x 14.5", in a 20" x 23.5" frame. It shows some minor handling wear; otherwise, condition is Very Good.
