    Description

    The Country Cousin Animation Drawings Group of 3 (Walt Disney, 1936).
    A superb collection of three animation drawings from the Silly Symphony short The Country Cousin, based on the Aesop Fable "The Town Mouse and The Country Mouse." The Walt Disney Company would produce 75 original animated shorts under the Silly Symphony banner between 1929 and 1939. The short subjects were designed to be whimsical pieces without recurring characters. These short features would help Disney redefine animation in terms of character effects and storytelling. The Silly Symphony shorts would also help usher in Disney's world-famous multiplane camera. The Country Cousin was released on October 31, 1936 and would go on to win the Academy Award for Best Animated Short. The artwork in this lot was created using graphite and colored pencil on 12 field, 5-peghole animation paper. These images can be seen beginning around the 1:56 mark in the short. The artwork has normal usage, minor handling and edge wear; otherwise, condition is Very Good.
