DescriptionPinocchio Coachman Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1940). In a shady tavern, in the middle of the night, con-men Honest John and J. Worthington Foulfellow receive a business proposition from one of the many dastardly enemies the titular puppet must face throughout the film. The character of the Coachman asks the fox and cat duo if they'd like to make some "real" money...procuring "stupid little boys" specifically, the "disobedient ones," for forced labor. This cockney-voiced villain assures the others that there's no fear of being found out - their victims never come back..."as BOYS!" Once the wayward youth have been plied by alcohol, tobacco, and gambling on Pleasure Island, they are all transformed into donkeys for the salt mines. This drawing can be seen as the Coachman replies "No, no - nothing like that" in response to Honest John's question regarding assassination. He measures 6" x 4.5" and is rendered in graphite and colored pencil on 12 field 5-peghole animation paper. "Prod. 2003 Seq. 7 Scene 34" is stamped in the bottom right corner of the drawing. There is some toning and light creasing throughout the drawing (image unaffected). In Good condition.
