    Description

    Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol Bob Cratchit and Tiny Tim Layout and Animation Drawing Group of 2 (UPA, 1962). "Will we have a pudding made of liver while we're guessing? Or maybe razzleberry dressing?" Tiny Tim sings in the grandfather of all animated TV Christmas specials Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol. The very first of its kind premiering on 12/18/1962, this special, immediately after its broadcast, prompted Walt Disney to call producer Lee Orgel. "Let me tell you something, Lee" Walt said, "Not only is this generation going to watch it, but your children, your children's children and your children's children's children will watch this show. That's how good it is. I couldn't wait to call you and tell you." Deserving of such high praise, this is a wonderful pair of original drawings from the production of Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol. The first of these pieces is a layout drawing depicting the moment Bob Cratchit and Tiny Tim walk into their home, seen at the 16:12 mark of the special. The second piece is an original animation drawing from their song at the dinner table, seen at 16:59. These delightful pieces are rendered in graphite and color pencil on 12 field animation paper. The layout drawing contains production notes with the notations SC 20, SEQ 3, 33-3 in the lower right corner. The animation drawing has C-13 written in the lower right. The drawings show minor handling and edge wear, and the condition of both pieces is Very Good.
