    Description

    Flirty Birdy Tom and Jerry Animation Drawing Group of 2 (MGM, 1945). Here is an outstanding pair of 12 field animation drawings of Tom Cat laying down a trail of cheese that leads to two slices of bread, and a happy Jerry eating the trail of cheese. This is from the 21st Tom and Jerry short and the first one released after the conclusion of WWII. In this short, Tom has to dress like a female bird to save Jerry from an eagle who has snatched Jerry (and the slices of bread) right out of Tom's hands. These two drawings can be seen in the first 25 seconds of the short. This Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera-directed short was released on 9/22/45; this scene was animated by Ray Patterson. Great images of 2" and 6". Minor handling and edge wear. Very Good condition.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
