    Tweety's S.O.S. Tweety Bird Animation Production Drawing (Warner Brothers, 1951). Tweety's S.O.S. opens with Sylvester rummaging through trash cans looking for food. When he doesn't find anything, he goes to the dock where he sees Tweety swinging in a cage on a cruise boat. He calls Tweety his breakfast! Tweety's S.O.S. was directed by animation legend Friz Freleng and released on 9/22/51. Bob Clampett created the character that would become Tweety in the 1942 short A Tale of Two Kitties, pitting him against two hungry cats named Babbit and Catstello. On the original model sheet, Tweety was named Orson, based on the model sheets in the early '40s, and was also the name of a bird character from an earlier Clampett cartoon Wacky Blackout. In this lot we have an adorable animation drawing of Tweety from Tweety's S.O.S. The image of Tweety measures 4.25" tall, rendered in graphite with red pencil on 12 field, 2-peghole animation paper. The piece is floated in a frame of 13.25" x 11.25". Frame sold as-is. Mild age-related toning, normal handling and edge wear. Very Good condition
