    Water Babies Animation Drawings Sequence of 3 (Walt Disney, 1935). This 1935 Wilfred Jackson-directed Silly Symphony short, first shown on 5/11/35, tapped into the immense popularity of Kewpie dolls, those cherub-faced happy little cupid-like imps found as carnival prizes, comic strips, and paper dolls. Here's a beautiful sequence of three original 12 field 2-peghole animation drawings from this short. This is from the water parade section of the film, as three Water Babies ride a pair of fish that jump and splash, as seen in online viewings at the 3:07 to 3:09 mark. These are gorgeous drawings in graphite with red and green pencil highlights and lots of splashing water effects. The drawings are numbered 13 (overall image size 10" x 7"); #27 (image 9.5" x 8.25"); and #35 (image 12" x 7"). All three drawings have reinforced pegholes with mild paper toning and minor handling wear. Very Good condition.
