    Description

    Tom and Jerry Animation Drawings Signed by Joe Barbera Group of 2 (MGM, c. 1950s). This may be one of the most interesting lots in this sale. Here are two pages of actual Joe Barbera gag ideas drawn out for Tom and Jerry shorts. One is written "Original Mouse Trap designed by Tom Cat" and the other has Tom high up in a bedroom, at a drawing board with a triumph grin. Both are graphite on 12 field, 3-peghole animation paper and signed by Joe Barbera (1911 - 2006). These drawings are a peek inside the mind of Joe Barbera and how he worked on the gags for the Tom and Jerry cartoons. The piece shows some minor handling wear; otherwise, condition is Very Good.
