    Flip the Frog Animator's Practice Model Sheet Original Art (Ub Iwerks, 1930-33). Flip the Frog was a character that Ub Iwerks developed after he left the Walt Disney Studio. Iwerks produced over 35 Flip the Frog cartoons for Celebrity Pictures, which were distributed by MGM. This is an extremely rare early Flip the Frog animator's practice model sheet. Flip is still in his early design, which had more of a frog-like appearance; he would later take on a more human/young boy look. Art is in graphite on 2-peghole animation paper measuring 10.5" x 12.5". Ten images, with sizes averaging 3". Two sets of pegholes on top and bottom, with the extra set likely added for reference binder holding. Minor handling and edge wear. In Very Good condition.
