    Description

    Wile E. Coyote Sketch by Chuck Jones (Warner Brothers, 1977). Chuck Jones once said that Wile E Coyote was inspired by the coyote in Mark Twain's book Roughing It, and that the character has some resemblance to animator Ken Harris as well. Wile E. made his first appearance in the short Fast and Furry-ous, directed by Jones and released on 9/17/49. This is a great one-of-a-kind sketch by Jones of Wile E. in a classic pose with dynamite and a slingshot, most certainly aimed at a certain road runner, in graphite on Jones' personal stationery, signed boldly "To Matt from the Coyote and Chuck Jones/1977." A fun 7" image. Fine condition.
