    Description

    Hollywood Caricature Production Drawing Group (Walt Disney, 1938-39). In the 1930s, doing caricatures of Hollywood celebrities was a common practice in animation. The caricatures by Disney animator T. Hee were legendary. Here's an amazing lot of four pieces from the Disney Studios, including three original 12-field 5-peghole animation drawings from the Academy Award-nominated theatrical short, Mother Goose Goes Hollywood, directed by Wilfred Jackson. These are great animation drawings of W. C. Fields as Humpty Dumpty, Hugh Herbert as Old King Cole, and Eddie Cantor as Little Jack Horner. A fourth animation drawing is of a young Mickey Rooney from the 1939 Donald Duck short The Autograph Hound. All are in graphite with slight color pencil highlights. Fields is 9"; Herbert is 8"; Cantor is 5", and Rooney is 6". It's "old school" Hollywood at its best!
