    The Merry Dwarfs Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1929). A trimmed animation/model drawing, probably by Ub Iwerks, from an early Silly Symphony short released December 19, 1929. The beer-drinking dwarf can be seen in a group approximately 2:21 minutes into the short. Walt Disney was an uncredited director, but Iwerks probably supplied the animation. This is a very rare piece of early Disney animation, in graphite on paper trimmed to 8.5" x 12". The beer drinking dwarf measures a tad over 4". There is a slight tear to the left side, some minor handling and edge wear, and a few thumb tack holes; otherwise, in Good condition.
