    Pinocchio Vintage Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1940).
    A wood-carver named Geppetto carves a wooden puppet named Pinocchio. His efforts to become a real boy involve encounters with a host of unsavory characters. Pinocchio was supervised by Ben Sharpsteen and Hamilton Luske. The film's sequences were directed by Norman Ferguson, T. Hee, Wilfred Jackson, Jack Kinney, and Bill Roberts. Pinocchio was a groundbreaking achievement in the area of effects animation, giving realistic movement to vehicles, machinery and natural elements such as rain, lightning, smoke, shadows and water. Produced by Walt Disney, Pinocchio was released on 2/7/40. Early scenes were animated by Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston showing Pinocchio design as a real wooden puppet. Milt Kahl and Fred Moore would redesign Pinocchio to make him more like a cute little boy and less like a wooden puppet. In this lot we have a superb animation drawing of Pinocchio. Crafted in graphite with colored pencil on 12 field 5-peghole animation paper. Pinocchio measures 4" tall is placed in the center of the paper. The piece is numbered 183 with a studio production stamp on the lower right. Very Good overall condition.
