    Dumbo Deleted Characters Storyboard/Concept Art Group of 13 (Walt Disney, 1941). Work on Dumbo began in late 1939, with initial story work done almost entirely by Dick Huemer and Joe Grant. It was their job to develop the plot. This is a series of rare story/concept drawings that feature two early characters that ended up on the cutting room floor. Apparently there was a little bird and a gopher that befriend Dumbo in the early story work. This lot displays these two secondary characters that were later discarded, including five storyboard panels on 5-peghole 8.25" x 8.75" paper of the little bird flying high over the Big Top. Pages are numbered 264, 282, 283, 284 and 285; all are in graphite with red pencil highlights. Also included is an additional eight story/concept art pages of the bird, the gopher, and one of Timothy Mouse. These are all on 12 field 5-peghole paper. Images on all are 4" - 6". Minor handing and edge wear, with pinholes in corners. Very Good condition.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
