    Private Snafu vs. Malaria Mike Production Drawing Group (Warner Brothers, 1944). This lot is a rare collection of six animation drawings from a Warner Brothers-produced World War II propaganda film starring Private Snafu. This short warned the GI's about the danger of Malaria and how to use caution. It may have been co-written by Ted Giesel (Dr. Seuss). This lot has four trimmed originals of Private Snafu trying to use his mosquito netting. The first is a 8.75" x 7" and the second is 4" x 5.5", both are graphite drawings. The third is of Snafu sleeping and measures 8.75" x 2.75" and is graphite with red, yellow, and blue pencil. The fourth is Snafu waking up under his mosquito net. It is graphite with red, yellow, and blue pencil and measures 8.75" x 6". The fifth is a simple effects drawing of some tiny mosquitos flying around, matches well with first drawing. The last is a graphite background on 12 field 2-peghole animation paper that shows a shivering tree. Six drawing in the lot, one is very small, others are very colorful. From the Francis "Cookie" Zied Collection. All in Fine condition.
