DescriptionPuss Cafe Pluto and Alley Cats Animation Drawings Sequence of 4 (Walt Disney, 1950). Pluto's day of relaxing in the hammock is cut short when a couple of crafty alley cats invade his territory, in this Charles Nichols-directed short, first seen in theaters on 6/9/50. Here's a wild sequence of four original 12 field 3-peghole animation drawings featuring Pluto and the cats, all drawn in graphite with red and blue penciling. These are from the scene where the two cats have been pushed out of the bird house right into Pluto's hammock, and the ensuing melee that happens between them; the scene depicted here begins at the 4:23 mark, and ends at 4:38. Drawings are noted in the lower right as #26 (overall image area measures 9" x 5.25"); #329 (image size 8.5" x 6"); #358 (image size 8.5" x 6.5", great shot of Pluto and the cats as they are about to tumble out of the hammock), and #397 (image size 9.25" x 6", stamped Trace Model Drwg.). These are all nicely detailed images, two with added timing charts to the right. The art is in Very Good condition with minor handling wear.
