    Tom Cat with Big Spike and Little Tyke Illustration Original Art by Bob Singer (MGM, c. 1990s).
    It's a face-off between angry protective father Big Spike and Tom, who appears to have been caught in the act of trying to steal Little Tyke's food, in this nicely rendered illustration by animation-artist Bob Singer. Mr. Singer's long career in animation included work at a number of major studios; while at Hanna-Barbera, he worked with these characters on Droopy: Master Detective and Tom & Jerry Kids Show. The art is in ink and watercolor on deckled edge paper, with an image area measuring 7.75" x 6.25"; it's matted, with an opening of 15.25" x 12.25", and overall mat size of 20.25" x 17.5". Condition is Fine.
