    Pinocchio Animator's Practice Model Sheet Group of 5 (Walt Disney, 1940). Pinocchio was released on February 7, 1940. The animating directors for this film were none other than Fred Moore, Frank Thomas, Milt Kahl, Bill Tytla, Art Babbitt, Eric Larson, Woolie Reitherman, and Ward Kimball. Here is a series of outstanding animator rough practice model sheets of Pinocchio, dated November 28, 1938. They are drawn in graphite, some with red highlights and others with blue, on 12 field 5-peghole paper. Amazing character study artwork. Sheet #1 has five images of Pinocchio and looks to possibly be from the hand of Fred Moore, drawing the new Milt Kahl-designed Pinocchio; sheet #2 has seven images, sheet #3 has seven images, sheet #4 has five images (all of Pinocchio), while the fifth sheet has two images of Pinocchio and three of Geppetto. The quality of these drawings is superb. Looking at the date, these all may be influenced by the new Milt Kahl design on the character. Minor handling and edge wear. Very Good condition.
