    Peter Pan Fred Moore Mermaid Animation Drawings, Timing Sheet, and Photos of June Foray as a Mermaid Model (Walt Disney, 1953). Few know that legendary voice actress June Foray (1917 - 2017) modeled as one of the lovely mermaid friends for the 1953 Disney animated feature Peter Pan. These four rough drawings of June's mermaid are by one of Disney's truly exceptional animators: Fred Moore (1911 - 1953). Moore was well-known around the studio for his drawings of innocently sexy women, referred to as "Freddie Moore Girls." Some of his girl designs found their way into Disney films like the Centaurettes in Fantasia and the mermaids in Peter Pan. They are delicately rendered in graphite and red pencil on 12 field, 3-peghole animation paper. Some paper aging; otherwise, condition is Very Good. With the drawings are a pair of 8" x 10" photos (one of June and the other of her and two other women) posed as the mermaids. Included in this lot is Fred Moore's animation timing sheet for "MCU Mermaid on the Left" (June). This is an amazing collection of rare studio artwork and documents used in the making of this Disney classic. Condition is Very Good. From the June Foray Collection.
