DescriptionLeon Schlesinger Studios Animation Drawings Group of 10 (Warner Brothers, c. 1940s). Presented is an assortment of original animation drawings created at Leon Schlesinger's Termite Terrace by animator Rev Chaney. Mr. Chaney worked under some of the studio's most notable directors, including Bob Clampett, Tex Avery, and Chuck Jones, to name a few. Notable amongst the cartoon characters in this collection are Cecil Tortoise from Tortoise Beats Hare and Willoughby the Dog from Heckling Hare. All are rendered in graphite and/or colored pencil on 12 field 2-peghole paper. It's a wonderful group of rare drawings that constitute a vintage Warner collection all by itself. The pieces show minor handling; otherwise condition is Very Good. From the Rev Chaney Archives.
