    Disney In-Studio Gag Drawings by Jesse Marsh Group of 22 (Walt Disney, c. 1940s). Jesse Marsh (1907 - 1966) was the first man to bring new original stories to Tarzan comic books (prior Tarzan comics consisted of newspaper strip reprints). Before working for Dell Comics/Western Publishing, he worked in the Story Department at Walt Disney Studios, from 1939 - 1947. This is a horde of in-studio gag artwork, with a woman named Nora Cochran as the brunt of the jokes. Artwork is in graphite, pastel, and Conte crayon on 5 field storyboard paper; trimmed paper; 12 field animation paper; on the back of half of a Glendale Restaurant mat; and back of a drink and appetizer small menu for the "Aloha" restaurant/bar. A neat peek into the Story Department of the Disney Studio in the 1940s. Minor handling wear, edge wear and tear, folds etc. In Fair overall condition.
