    Description

    Zoom and Bored Road Runner Original Chuck Jones Production Drawing (Warner Brothers, 1957).
    Zoom and Bored is a Warner Brothers cartoon in the Merrie Melodies series featuring Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner. The short was directed by legendary animator, Chuck Jones (1912 - 2002). In the short the two antagonists zoom into view and begin the chase, freezing momentarily for their Latin names to be shown: COYOTE: Famishus Vulgaris and ROAD RUNNER: Birdibus Zippibus. From Zoom and Bored we have a superb rough drawing of Birdibus Zippibus measuring 4" tall with an image area of 8" x 4". The drawing was rendered by Chuck Jones in graphite on 12 field, 3-peghole animation paper. The piece is in a frame of 22.75" x 16" with Plexiglas. Screen grab image included in frame. Frame sold as-is. Original production art from the hand of Chuck Jones is highly sought after by serious animation collectors. This is an exceptionally good piece! Very Good condition.
