    Ace in the Hole Woody Woodpecker Model Sheet Art (Walter Lantz, 1942). Original art animator's model sheet of Woody Woodpecker and his commanding officer.

Two images of the officer measuring 6" and 7" and three images of Woody, 3" to 4". Extremely rare World War II production artwork of Woody Woodpecker. Graphite on paper; some tape marks and tape staining, otherwise Fine.
