DescriptionMerbabies Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1938). A water sprite plays with an oversized air bubble in this original 12 field 2-peghole animation drawing. This was a rare Silly Symphony short produced by the Harmon-Ising studio, directed by Rudolf Ising and Vernon Stallings. The image can be seen at the 7:03 mark, near the end of the short. Art is in graphite with red pencil; image size is 5.5" tall, including the big bubble. The number 64 is written in the lower right corner, below a faint production stamp. Fine condition with light handling wear.
