    Peanuts - Ford Falcon TV Commercial Charlie Brown and Linus Layout Drawings Group of 2 (Playhouse Pictures, 1959/61). "Is it alright if we come to the party?" asks Charlie Brown after he and the Peanuts gang walk into a Ford Falcon Showroom. The narrator replies, "Yes! Welcome to the first birthday for the Ford Falcon! One year better!" You can currently find this spot on YouTube. Here is a rare, 12 field, hand-drawn, layout drawing of Charlie Brown and seven of the Peanuts characters (including Snoopy, Schroeder, Lucy, Linus, and Violet), with extensive ink and paint notes which say, "Use White Card BG Scene 1." This is a piece of history, as the very first animation for Charles Schulz's Charlie Brown and the Peanuts characters was for Ford Falcon spots. A second 12 field piece is a graphite, ink, and marker layout drawing of Charlie Brown and Linus walking, taken from another early Ford Falcon spot marked "Springtime." The hand-inking has a great amount of strip-like detail, with nice use of color. Two important pieces of early Peanuts animation in this lot! Minor handling wear, tape, and border tears. Fair to Good condition overall; the main body of the drawing is Fine.
