Description

    Rovers Rival Porky Pig Animation Drawing (Warner Brothers, 1937). This is a piece of history. This was the first Warner Brothers short that used the "Merry Go Round Broke Down" opening music and ended with the "Porky Pig In the Drum" gag. This is a rare, 12 field, 2-peghole animation drawing of Porky Pig's dog, Rover. In this memorable short (directed by Bob Clampett with animation by Chuck Jones), Porky tries out a book titled "New Tricks to Teach Your Dog." The historic short was released on 10/9/37. In graphite with slight red pencil highlights, with "#8" written in the bottom right corner. Rover is 8" x 5". In Very Good condition, with minor handling and paper restoration at the top of the paper. From the estate of Warner Brothers Ink & Paint Dept. employee Francis "Cookie" Zeid.
