    Description

    Virgil Ross "The Art of Michigan J. Frog" Model Sheet Original Art (Warner Brothers, c. 1990s). "Hello! Ma Baby!!!" Michigan J. Frog made his first singing and dancing appearance in One Froggy Evening on 12/31/55. He would appear in a sequel to this classic short in the 1990s, as well as becoming the mascot for the WB Network in 1995. This is a great original sheet of artwork of Michigan J. Frog from the hand of longtime WB animator, Mr. Virgil Ross. There are six images done in graphite over blue pencil on 16 field animation paper. These were done to sell as his personal appearances in the early 1990s at Warner Brothers Studio Store Galleries and Animation Art Galleries. Mr. Ross had a line of hand-painted limited edition cels that were made from sequences that he actually animated during his 30-plus year career at Warner Brothers. They were unique in that they had the characters in sequence of multiple hand-drawn images. These Michigan J. Frog drawings have nice image sizes of 4" to 6". The "Model Sheet" style drawing is hand-signed by Mr. Ross (1907 - 1996). Minor handling and edge wear. Very Good condition.
