    Dumbo Crows Animation Drawings Group of 6 (Walt Disney, 1941). Ward Kimball did some great animation with the politically incorrect Crows. This lot is a very rare set of five 12 field, 5-peghole color model drawings of all five crows! The drawings include Fat, Dandy (Jim), Glasses, Preacher, and Straw Hat Crow. Each drawing is stamped "Color Model -- Return to Color Department" and each has the production stamp filled out in the bottom right corner. Incredible images of 3" to 6" tall. Done in graphite with red and green highlights. A sixth drawing of smoke effects from Dandy's cigar is also in the lot. It's very rare to find a complete set of all five crows. Minor handling wear, and there is paper clip rust on the top left of the "Jim" drawing. Fine condition. From the Elmer Plummer Archives.
