    Pinocchio J. Worthington Foulfellow Animation Rough Drawing (Walt Disney, 1940). "And he still thinks we're his friends... and did Stromboli pay? PLENTY! This shows you how low Honest John will stoop, hey Giddy?" This is an outstanding 12 field 5-peghole rough animation drawing of J. Worthington Foulfellow (aka "Honest" John). It's from the scene where he negotiates with the Coachman to sell Pinocchio to him, to end up at Pleasure Island. Graphite image of 6", with #94 written in the bottom right corner. The drawing is signed by the Supervising Animator of this scene, Mr. Shamus Culhane (1908 - 1996), and stamped on back, "Shamus Culhane New York." He probably kept this drawing inventoried at the studio he had in New York, where he made many animated TV commercials. This is one great action drawing, showcasing John dropping the money bag he was given by Stromboli for Pinocchio's services. Minor handling; Fine condition.
