    Description

    Stork's Holiday Baby Cat Animation Drawing (MGM, 1943). "The great mystery today is where is Doc Stork?" opens this great cartoon, about a stork who has to deliver babies between German bombs in the sky. The short was directed by George Gordon and featured voice work done by Pinto Colvig. It was released on 10/23/43. This is a rare 12 field animation drawing of the baby cat riding on a German airborne bomb. It can be seen at around the 3:50 mark. It is right before two bombs are going to collide, and the stork saves the baby cat. Amazing detail in graphite and red pencil, with an adorable 7" image. Artwork from this World War II-themed short is considered very rare. Minor handling and edge wear. In Very Good condition.
