    Robinson Carusoe Isle Oswald the Lucky Rabbit Animation Drawing (Universal/Walter Lantz, 1935). Stranded on a desert isle Oswald wrestles with his radio in this original animation drawing from an early Walter Lantz production. After Walt Disney lost the rights to Oswald the Lucky Rabbit in 1928, the popular cartoon series was continued by Charles Mintz and eventually by Walter Lantz. He went on to produce/direct 142 Oswald shorts along with such legendary animators as Tex Avery, Ray Abrams, Clyde Geronimi, and Pinto Colvig. This is an original graphite and red pencil animation drawing of Oswald in full figure measuring 2.5" x 2" on 12 field 2-peghole paper. Oswald's look changed with the times and this is an extraordinarily rare image of this character from his third iteration and just prior to a major redesign in the 1935 short Lost Sheep. Minor handling and toning; otherwise condition is Fine.
