    Description

    Crusader Rabbit Model Sheet and Animation Drawing Group (Creston Studios, 1959). TV's first original animated star Crusader Rabbit (co-created by Jay Ward in 1949) came back for 260 new episodes in 1959. It was produced by Shull Bonsull's Capital Enterprises, with supervision by Bob Gannon and Gerald Ray. Finding any Crusader Rabbit art is tough. Here is a rare Model Sheet print that has six facial expressions of Crusader Rabbit, Ragland T. Tiger (Rags), and Dudley Nightshade along with Garfield the Groundhog and Dudley's sidekick Bilious Green. Sheet measures 12.5" x 11" with minor handling and small tear on top. The lot also has eight studio animation drawings; six of Crusader Rabbit, one of Rags the Tiger, and one of both Crusader Rabbit with Rags. Minor handling and edge wear. Overall, drawings are Very Good. From the Cecil Beard Estate.
