    Description

    Robert McKimson Assorted Character Design Drawings (Warner Brothers, 1940s-'50s). A great selection of five character drawings by Warner Brothers artist Robert McKimson, who developed an array of characters that still reign today -- Foghorn Leghorn, Speedy Gonzalez, and the Tasmanian Devil to name a few. This series of classic secondary characters are hand-drawn in graphite with colored pencil highlights on 12-field 2-peghole animation paper. Included are three drawings from the 1951 short Sleepy Time Possum featuring Poppa Possum, Junior Possum, and Poppa in a dog costume; a drawing of the Scottish lighthouse keeper for the 1955 McKimson-directed short Light House Mouse; and a hen from a Foghorn Leghorn short circa the early 1950s. Each is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Robert McKimson Jr. In Fine condition. From the McKimson Collection.
