    Description

    Planter's Peanuts "Circus Hero" Mr. Peanut Commercial Animation Drawing Group (Planters, c. 1940-50s). This amazing group contains 26 rough 12 field 2-peghole animation drawings for a proposed Planter's Peanuts commercial that was essentially a cartoon short all on it's own! Titled Circus Hero, it had a plot involving an escaped mad Elephant who is confronted by a little girl offering a peanut. An early design for Mr. Peanut shows up with Planter's brand to save the day. These highly detailed and stylized drawings are produced in graphite, with color pencil highlights on several. Some pages have black ink title lettering. Slight tanning with minor handling and edge wear. Beautiful artwork and fluid and expressive animation. Overall in Fine condition.
