    Description

    Merbabies Model Sheet Original Art (Walt Disney, 1938). The sequel to Water Babies was the first short that was produced outside the Walt Disney Studios. Due to the heavy load of Snow White, it was a collaboration between Walt Disney and the Harmon and Ising Studio. It was released on 12/9/38. This is a stunning original model sheet of the Merbabies. Seventeen adorable, detailed graphite images that are trimmed to image and mounted to a board measuring 18" x 13". In pencil is written "RS-4 Little Mermaids" in top left border and "Merbabies" in the top right corner. The drawings have been taped down to hold them as the glue must have been letting go. This is not a studio print; this is an original. A studio negative print of this model sheet is included. Good condition.
