The Pogo Special Birthday Special Chuck Jones Storyboard and Walt Kelly Illustration (MGM, 1969). This lot is a piece of pure "Pogo History!" Pogo was created by Walt Kelly (1913 - 1973). He originally appeared in comic book stories beginning in 1943, but the first newspaper strip was published on 10/4/48. The characters lived in the Okefenokee Swamp in Georgia. This is a rare Chuck Jones (1912 - 2002) hand-drawn storyboard of Pogo with Churchy LaFemme and Bun Rabbit, created for The Pogo Special Birthday Special. This NBC-TV prime time special ran on 5/18/69 and was co-produced by both Walt Kelly and Chuck Jones, with Mr. Jones directing the special and Mr. Kelly writing it. The Pogo storyboard is on paper measuring 7" x 8" with artwork in a 5" x 7" "TV frame" box, with dialogue written under the art. It's matted with a BEAUTIFUL original Walt Kelly illustration of Pogo and Albert Alligator. Nice distinct images of 4" and 7", in ink over blue pencil on board. This is a fantastic combination of Pogo art from the hands of BOTH Chuck Jones and Walt Kelly, the likes of which we may never see again. Framed with Plexiglas, for an overall size of 30.75" x 18.25", and a Linda Jones Letter of Authenticity on back of frame. Fine condition.
