    Description

    The Country Cousin Animation Drawing Sequence of 5 (Walt Disney, 1936). This delightful Silly Symphony short is about two mice at a banquet, one, a sophisticated city mouse named Monty, and the other, his country bumpkin cousin Abner. It boasted beautiful animation by Jack Hannah, Les Clark, Art Babbitt, and several others. Here's a great sequence of four original 12 field 5-peghole animation drawings of the scene where Abner and Monty slid off the table top, with art in graphite with red, green, and blue pencil highlights. The first four show the pair as they are falling mid-air, with a tipsy Abner holding on to Monty's coattails, as seen in online viewings at the 7:14 mark; drawings are numbered 23 (image size 3.5" x 5.5"); #3 (great shot with Abner's open umbrella, image size 5" x 7.75"); #26 (with Monty face down in a blob of red penciled sauce, image size 4.5" x 8"); and #55 (solo image of Abner's soft landing, size is 4.5" x 5.5"). An extra page is noted in the lower right as #96S; this is as the mice are skidding across the table on a spinning plate, right before they go down (image size 5" x 3"); you can find this at the 7:05 mark. Condition is Good to Very Good, with extra pegholes on one drawing, as well as light paper toning and handling/edge wear.
