    Description

    Superman "Terror on the Midway" Animation/Layout Drawing (Max Fleischer, 1942). Very rare original animation/layout drawing of the escaped giant gorilla (Gigantic), as he enters the big top -- to the horror of all the circus attendees. This impressive drawing is taken from the "Terror on the Midway" Superman cartoon, the seventh and last Superman short made by the Fleischer Studios. (17 were made in total, yet only the first seven by the Fleischers; the remaining shorts were produced by Famous Studios.) "Terror on the Midway" was released on 8/23/42. The incredibly detailed facial close-up displays the masterful draftsmanship that went into each of these shorts. Gigantic is drawn in graphite with red, brown, and blue highlights. This impressive image measures 8" x 10". It can be seen near the 3:29 mark into the cartoon. A print of an original model sheet of Gigantic is included in the lot. Print is 11" x 9". The original was "OK'd" by animator Dan Gordon. Any and all artwork from the Fleischer Studios Superman cartoons is considered extremely rare. Minor handling and light fold down center. In Good condition.
