    Angel Puss Animation Drawing (Warner Brothers, 1944). This Chuck Jones short is one of the "Censored 11" that is not shown in any capacity due to its politically incorrect depiction of African-Americans. It is the story of Young Sambo and his task to kill the cat, which he decides not to do. Nevertheless, the cat paints himself white to appear as a ghost after he is mistakenly believed to be dead. This is an original 12 field animation drawing of Sambo and the cat (pretending to be an angel). This short was released on 6/3/44 and is the only short directed by Jones on the "Censored 11" list. The images are 4". Extra top peg holes were added as the drawing was at one time stored in a three-ring binder. In Fine condition.
