    Description

    Merrie Melodies Stock Theatrical Poster (Warner Brothers, 1933). As originally conceived by producer Leon Schlesinger, Merrie Melodies cartoons were to feature music from current Warner Brothers films, servicing as additional sources of advertising for these pictures. To develop this new property, Schlesinger recruited Rudy Ising and Hugh Harman from rival Disney Studios in 1931. The series proved extremely popular and soon developed a recurring cast of characters. This is the very first Merrie Melodies theatrical one sheet, a stock poster with generic animal characters, designed for use with different shorts. It measures 27" x 41" and has been professionally linen backed. A few minor handling and edge wear blemishes. Overall Very Good.
