DescriptionWoody Woodpecker Opening Title Signed Animation Drawing (Walter Lantz, c. 1950s). Woody does what he does best, in this extremely cool original production drawing from one of the 1950s opening titles. This is a real WOW drawing for fans of this long-running character (Woody Woodpecker theatrical shorts were made continually from 1941 until Lantz closed shop in 1972). The art is in graphite with red pencil highlights on animation paper; Woody's figure size is 5" from beak to outstretched arm. The drawing has been hand-signed by Woody's "father," Walter Lantz (1899 - 1994). Matted with an opening of 11" x 9" and framed using Plexiglas for an overall size of 18" x 16". An MCA/Universal Animation Art COA is included in a pocket on back of the frame. Frame is sold as-is. Very Good condition.
