    Description

    Pinocchio "Give a Little Whistle" Animation Drawing (Disney, 1940) "Give a little Whistle!" One of the cheerful musical numbers that takes place early in the film, as Pinocchio's newly-elected "Official Conscience", Jiminy Cricket, teaches the wooden boy how to whistle - and sing - and dance! It's an absolutely wonderful drawing with a charming expression on Pinocchio's face - the detail on his Tyrolean costume is on full display here. He has just tried to "capture a whistle" in his small feathered cap, and expects the echo to whistle back! The drawing also has an added shadow effect and this impressive piece measures 6" x 7" overall. Pinocchio is rendered in graphite and colored pencil on 12 field 5-peghole paper with C19 written in the lower right corner. It also bears a studio production stamp that reads, "Prod 2003 Seq 16 Scene 15". The piece shows minor handling; otherwise condition is Very Good.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
