    Description

    Rocky and Bullwinkle "Hat Trick" Sequence of Drawings by Gerald Baldwin (Jay Ward, c. 1990s). "Hey Rocky, watch me pull a rabbit out of my hat!" says Bullwinkle. "That trick never works" says Rocky. "Nothing up my sleeve... I gotta get another hat!" says Bullwinkle when the rabbit doesn't appear. This famous interstitial spot actually had Bullwinkle pulling out four different animals, but never the rabbit. He pulled out a tiger, a rhino, a lion, and eventually Rocket J. Squirrel himself. This is a series of original one-of-a-kind pen and ink/color marker drawings of the entire "Bullwinkle pulling a rabbit out of his hat" sequence, with all the players. They were done by the original director of the Rocky and Friends series, Gerard Baldwin (1929 - 2018). Mr Baldwin was a well-known director, animator, writer, and producer for many hit cartoon shows. He was a two-time Emmy winner and multiple Emmy-nominated director/producer as well. He won two Emmys for his work on The Smurfs. There are five original art pieces in the sequence, in a long frame measuring 58.5" x 18". Each mat opening is 10" x 9". These were done for a Gerard Baldwin appearance at an animation art gallery show. With the original art from the show not being available (they were originally done in Mexico and later thrown out), this is some rare artwork of this important and fondly-remembered sequence! Each piece is individually hand-signed by the artist. Frame is sold as-is. Artwork condition is Very Good.
