    Description

    Angel Puss "Censored Eleven" Sambo Layout Drawing (Warner Brothers, 1944). This controversial short, about a little African-American boy named Sambo who has agreed to "drown a cat," is the only Chuck Jones-directed short found in the notorious "Censored Eleven" list of cartoons that have been banned from broadcasting. It's also the only Looney Tunes short on the list. Here is an impossibly rare original 12 field two-peghole layout drawing of Sambo from this racially stereotyped short, which was released on 6/3/44. Sambo is drawn in graphite with an image size of 4". The number 62 in bottom right corner with animator notes as well. Minor handling and edge wear. Very Good condition.
