    Description

    Private Snafu vs. Malaria Mike Animation Drawing (Warner Brothers, 1944). This is a very rare animation drawing from a Warner Brothers-produced World War II propaganda film starring Private Snafu. This short warned the GI's about the danger of Malaria and how to use caution and may have been co-written by Ted Giesel (Dr. Seuss). In this rather risqué drawing, Private Snafu kisses a pin-up goodnight leaving a portion of himself exposed to mosquitos outside his protective netting. It can be seen on YouTube at the 3:55 mark. The overall image in graphite measures 7" x 9" on trimmed paper. The artwork is in a frame of 16.75" x 15" under Plexiglas with a mat opening of 10.75" x 9". Frame sold as-is. Included are screen grab copies on the back of the frame. Original artwork from Warner Brothers' war effort is extremely rare. Minor handling. Condition is Very Good.
