    Pinocchio Jiminy Cricket Animation Drawing with Courvoisier Stamp and Ward Kimball Autograph (Walt Disney, 1940). Jiminy Cricket was selected to be Pinocchio's conscience by the Blue Fairy which proved to be a bigger job that he thought, and it shows in this expressive image. This wonderfully detailed animation drawing of Jiminy Cricket was originally sold through Courvoisier Galleries and bears their WDP stamp in the lower right corner. Only a handful of the best pencils were chosen for sale as the colorful cels were preferred by most collectors. This full-figure image of Jiminy rendered in graphite and red and green pencil measures 4" tall and shares a frame with a U.S. Postal Service First Day Cover signed by Disney Legend and lead animator of Jiminy, Ward Kimball (1924 - 2002). A second Kimball autograph is on back of the frame. Both the artwork and envelope are framed under glass for an overall size of 16" x 13". Condition is Fine. Frame is sold as-is.
