    Description

    Virgil Ross - Tweety and Sylvester Drawing (Warner Brothers, c. 1990s). Tweety towels off using that bad ol' puddy tat's tongue, in this drawing inspired by the 1950 Friz Freleng-directed short "Home Tweet Home". This was one of dozens of Warner Brothers cartoons featuring animation by Virgil Ross (1907 - 1996). In fact, two of the Tweety and Sylvester cartoons Mr. Ross worked on were nominated for an Academy Award - "Tweety Pie" and "Birds Anonymous." Mr. Ross began releasing hand-painted Limited Edition cels of his famous Looney Tunes scenes as part of the "Master's Collection" cels sold at Warner Brothers Studio Stores and animation galleries. Virgil Ross rendered this in graphite and blue pencil on 12 field 3-peghole animation paper with color added. It has an overall image size of 7.5" x 12". This signed drawing is in Fine condition.
