    Pay Day Private Snafu Concept Drawing (Warner Brothers, 1944). It's pay day and Private Snafu makes another questionable purchase rather than socking away his earnings for a post war life. In this concept drawing, Snafu leads a recently purchased Kangaroo and in its pouch is the little devil that convinced him to do it. These wartime training films were designed to instruct service personnel about security, proper sanitation habits, booby traps and other military subjects, and to improve troop morale. Primarily, they demonstrate the negative consequences of doing things wrong. This particular film was directed by Friz Freleng and uncredited supervising producer was Theodor Geisel (Dr. Seuss). The Kangaroo certainly bears a Seuss-like expression. This wonderful graphite story/concept drawing measures 8" x 6" on 12 field 2-peghole paper. The paper shows toning and light handling. Condition is Very Good.
