    Description

    Mouse Wreckers Claude Cat Animation Drawing by Chuck Jones (Warner Brothers, 1949). Scouting out a new home, Hubie calls over Bertie, who begins to gaze into it before Hubie slaps Bertie to make him realize that before they can move in, Claude, the cat who has an award for "Best Mouser", must be removed first. The artwork in this lot is an original rough production drawing from the hand of Chuck Jones (1912 - 2002). The legendary Mr. Jones was the director of this short, Mouse Wreckers, released on 4/23/49. The image features Claude staring at himself in a mirror. The piece was rendered in graphite with red pencil on 12 field, 2-peghole animation paper. The artwork is in a frame of 20" x 14.5" under Plexiglas with a mat opening of 11.5" x 9.25". Frame sold as-is. A screen grab copy of the scene is also matted in the frame. Animation art actually drawn by Chuck Jones is considered rare, and highly sought after by astute collectors. Very minor superficial wrinkling in the lower center portion of this 70 year old piece of art. Condition is Very Good.
