    The Worm Turns Cat Animation Drawing Group (Walt Disney, 1937). In this cartoon, Mickey invents a "courage formula." When a cat is scared by Pluto out of its nine lives, Mickey sprays life #9, and a much tougher cat roars back, to Pluto's dismay. This is a series of four animation/model drawings of the cat taken from that Ben Sharpsteen-directed short, including Cat Life #3 floating up, plus three other 12 field sheets, one with two images of the cat. The art is in graphite, three with red pencil highlights. Images range from small (3") to huge (an 8.5" tall cat that practically fills the page). Adorable poses! Minor handling; overall Very Good to Fine condition.
