    Swing Shift Cinderella "Red Hot" Animation Drawings Sequence of 10 (MGM, 1945). "All the chicks are crazy for a certain burly wolf, a real sharp curly curly wolf, whose line is oh so smooth when he spreads it on..." sings Swing Shift Cinderella, aka Red Hot, in this incredibly funny Tex Avery-directed short. And believe us, all the animation fans worldwide are crazy about this vivacious cartoon vixen! Here's a remarkable sequence of original 12 field 3-peghole animation drawings by legendary artist Preston Blair of Red as Cinderella. These are close-up images of Cindie as she sings the "Oh, Wolfie" line, "And when you're near I just can't sit still a minute..." The pages are numbered 3 (at the 5:24 mark in online viewings), 8, 38, 41, 43, 46, 49, 51, 54, and 57 (seen at the 5:28 mark). The art is in graphite, some with loose brown pencil underdrawings; figure sizes average 7.5" to 8". The first drawing in the sequence is extra-sharp, with her bowed ribbon up high on her neck, and lower as well (as it is the remaining drawings); it's stamped as Production 128. There are a few animator's notes on some of the drawings. Paper has some light toning and minor handling wear, with an overall condition of Very Good. Oh, Red... ain't you the one!
