    El Terrible Toreador Animation Drawings Original Art Group of 3 (Walt Disney, 1929). Walt Disney directed this short, only the second Silly Symphony cartoon, which was released on 9/26/29. It had animation done by a team of future Disney shorts directors -- Ub Iwerks, Burt Gillett, Wilfred Jackson, Les Clark, Jack King, and Ben Sharpsteen -- what a line up! This short had music by Carl Stallings, and the matador in this cartoon was an early studio caricature of Walt Disney (which was later done again in Ferdinand). This is a series of three trimmed 12 field 2-peghole animation sheets of production drawings in this short. The first two are of the waitress in Spain, serving the man in the white suit who has fallen over. You can see these images in the short around the :59 second mark and 1:12 mark. The third drawing is the Walt Disney caricature matador with the bull. This is right before the waitress sends them flowers at the 5:18 mark. Graphite with red pencil highlights. Three production drawings in one Plexiglas-front frame measuring 40" x 11". Images are 3" - 6". Some of the earliest studio animation drawings we have seen! Frame is sold as-is; overall condition of the art is Very Good.
