    1,001 Arabian Nights Mr. Magoo Pre-Release Poster (UPA/Columbia, 1958). Nearsighted Mr. Magoo starred in his first feature-length animated film in 1959. It was distributed by Columbia, their first-ever full-length animated film. This is one of the rarest animation theatrical posters we have seen -- a pre-release/advance poster for 1,001 Arabian Nights. It was released in 1958, a year prior to the film's release. Highly stylized poster featuring artwork by Robert Dranko, with pristine vibrant colors. Printed on bottom is "Characters and scenes depicted are from "Magoo's Arabian Nights", a full-feature animated cartoon now in production for Colombia release." The notation "1958 UPA Pictures" is on the side border. Printed on thin type paper, measuring 20" x 30". Folded. Fine condition
