DescriptionWacky Wildlife Camel Animation Drawings Sequence of 49 (Warner Brothers, 1940). "I don't care what you say, I'm thirsty" says the camel in response to the narrator of this Tex Avery-directed wildlife documentary parody. Included in this lot are 49 original animation drawings of the camel from around the 6:35 mark. Many feature the character in full-figure which measure 8" x 6" while others feature a detail of his head as he gives his spoken response. One sheet outlines the timing of the mouth in sync with the words spoken, providing a fascinating insight into the animation process of the time. A collection all by itself, this sequence of original drawings from a 1940s Tex Avery cartoon is a very rare find. All show handling, edge wear and toning. Condition is Very Good. From the Rev Chaney Archives.
