    War and Pieces Background Layout Drawing (Warner Brothers, 1964). This is a piece of Looney Tunes history. "War and Pieces" was the last Wile E./Road Runner theatrical short directed by Chuck Jones until his return in the 1980s and 90s. It was co-directed by Maurice Noble. This is an amazing 38" x 10.5" pan background layout of the Southwestern Desert where all Road Runner cartoons take place. Art is in graphite with many colored pencil highlights. This is from the scene at about 1:24, where Wile E. is blown up by a hand grenade. Layouts for this short were done by Dave Rose and Maurice Noble. A beautiful piece of artwork. Four folds with minor handling and edge wear. Very Good condition.
