    Merbabies Mermaid Animation Drawing (Walt Disney/Harman and Ising, 1938). A sweet little mermaid does her dance (atop an air bubble) in this original 12 field 2-peghole animation drawing. Merbabies was a sequel of sorts to the 1935 Silly Symphonies short Water Babies, and was a collaboration between Walt Disney and the production team of Hugh Harman and Rudolf Ising. Harman and Ising had worked at the Disney Studio up until 1929 when the moved on to Warner Brothers (and later MGM), but had been called back to work for the studio on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. This lovely little drawing is in graphite with red and blue highlights; she stands about 3.5" tall. The number 24 is written in the bottom right corner. Fine condition.
