    Description

    Pinocchio Early Design Animation Drawings Sequence of 4 (Walt Disney, 1940). "Little Wooden Head go play your part... bring a little joy to every heart!" This is a very rare set of four very early studio animation drawings of Pinocchio being led around by his strings. We believe this scene would morph into the "Little Wooden Head" song, sung by Geppetto as he walks the puppet Pinocchio around his shop. Graphite (with red pencil highlights on three drawings) on 12 field 5-peghole animation paper. Nice image sizes of 5". The drawings are labeled 436, 438, 448, and 454. This is a very early development sequence, from before Milt Kahl redesigned the character to appear more like a real boy. Minor handling and edge wear. Very Good condition.
