    Wonderful World of Color Layout Drawings and Print Group of 6 (Walt Disney, c. 1960s). Professor Ludwig Von Drake was the animated host to a number of episodes of Disney's weekly television series, Wonderful World of Color. Here is a group of five hand-drawn layouts from one of those opening segments. One drawing features Von Drake at his desk, reading from a sheet of paper; this piece is in dark blue pencil within a red pencil frame; image size is 4.5" on a 16 field animation sheet. Two drawings are highly detailed images of Drake's desk, chair, and loaded bookcase, with a lamp, more books, and a vase on the desk. One fills a 16 field sheet, while the second, near-identical drawing is on pan paper, folded on the left side; image area is approximately the same on both, and both have notations ("J. H." and "J. Hale") indicating producer Joe Hale's involvement. An additional folded pan drawing in red pencil of an office interior (with the sign "Think Sick" on the wall), with an overall image size of 25" wide is included, as is a pan sheet with an interior drawing printed in black; this folded piece measures 30" wide. Six items in all. Condition ranges from Good to Very Good, with minor staining on the red pencil and print pages. Rare look at the making of a Disney TV episode!
