    Sufferin' Cats! Tom and Jerry Animation Drawing (MGM, 1943).
    Tom is casting his fishing rod to catch Jerry in this 1943 Tom and Jerry cartoon. You can see this image at the 1:05 mark in the animated short, Sufferin' Cats! The drawing was created using graphite on 12 field, 3-peghole animation paper. The scene is credited to Pete Burness (1904-1969), the two-time Academy Award winner best known for his work on the Mr. Magoo cartoon series. This is a terrific opportunity to acquire a piece of vintage animation art! This is actual working production art and thus will show normal usage, artists notes, minor handling, and edge wear with a small tear near the bottom of the piece well away from the image; otherwise the artwork is in Very Good condition.
