    This is a Life? Yosemite Sam Animation Drawings Sequence of 3 with Friz Freleng Signature (Warner Brothers, 1955). "That's right! It's Yosemite Sam!" Here is a sequence of three original animation roughs of Sam as he takes the stage in this parody of the popular '50s TV show This is your life. These images can be seen around the 4:56 mark as Sam confronts his old adversary Bugs Bunny. This was one of only two classic shorts to feature all three of Bugs' primary antagonists together (Sam, Elmer and Daffy). All are full-body images measuring 4" tall rendered in graphite on 12 field animation paper. The sequence of drawings is accompanied by a color print of Daffy that has been signed by the director of this short, Friz Freleng (1906 - 1995). All share a common frame under glass with three oval openings 6" x 7" and one rectangular opening of 4.5" x 6" in a 33" x 13.5" frame. All three drawings show minor handling and condition is Very Good. Frame is sold as-is.
