    The Mighty Hunters Canyon Kiddies Animation Drawing Signed Chuck Jones (Warner Brothers, 1940). In 1939 Leon Schlesinger experimented with the idea of using James Swinnerton's comic strip "Canyon Kiddies" for a proposed series of animated cartoons and Chuck Jones was selected to direct them. The resultant cartoon, The Mighty Hunters, came out the following year. This is an original animation drawing from that short. The 4" x 2.5" image of two Canyon Kiddies is rendered in graphite and red pencil on 12 field 2-peghole paper and signed by Chuck Jones (1912 - 2002). It's a remarkable production piece from Jones' early directorial days at Termite Terrace. The piece shows light handling and condition is Very Good. From the Rev Chaney Archives.
