    House Hunting Mice Bertie Animation Drawing (Warner Brothers, 1947).
    House Hunting Mice was directed by the legendary animator, Chuck Jones (1912 - 2002) and released on 9/6/47. In the cartoon Hubie and Bertie in a search for cheese, wander into a model "home of tomorrow." The duo does battle with the automated convenience features, including robots who sweep floors when they detect any foreign objects. Very often, the unintelligent Bertie goofs around with the appliances in the home which results in getting both mice into trouble, causing Hubie to frequently slap him in the face. In this lot we have a spectacular animation rough drawing of Bertie with a flower on his head. The drawing was rendered in graphite on 12 field animation paper with our character measuring 7" tall in an image area of 7" x 7.5". The piece is in a frame of 17" x 14.5" under Plexiglas with a mat opening of 10.5" x 8.5". Frame sold as-is. A screen grab copy of the scene is included. This is a wonderful rough sketch not to be missed by fans of Chuck Jones cartoons! Fine condition.
