    The Practical Pig Big Bad Wolf Production Cel and Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1939). "He's got 'em! Where are my brothers?" asks the Practical Pig to the Big Bad Wolf who's at his front door, disguised as a messenger boy. This was the fourth and last Silly Symphony "Three Little Pigs" short. It was directed by Dick Rickard, and released on 2/24/39. It had animation done by Preston Blair, Ollie Johnston, Frank Thomas, and John Lounsbery. This is a very rare trimmed hand-inked, hand-painted production cel of the Big Bad Wolf in the Practical Pig's Anti-Wolf Lie Detector Machine. Great image of him in his Messenger Boy outfit, with a size of 8". The 12 field nitrate cel is trimmed to 9" x 8.5", and is on a print background for presentation purposes. As a bonus, a 12 field 5-peghole animation drawing of the Big Bad Wolf from this same scene is included. Very rare to have a Big Bad Wolf production cel and production drawing of the same scene! Drawing is in graphite with red pencil highlights. Great image size of 7". Minor handling and edge wear; overall condition is Very Good.
