    The Year of the Mouse Tom Cat Production Animation Drawing (MGM, 1965). Jerry and his pal Dupli Mouse do a "Gaslight" number on Tom with an assortment of tricks in this short, directed by animation legends Chuck Jones and Maurice Noble. Here's Tom as he ponders his own sanity after waking up with a noose around his neck; you can find the scene in online viewings at about the 3:30 mark. This original 12 field animation drawing is in graphite with orange and yellow pencil; the full-figure image has a size of about 6". There are notes and a small timing chart to the right, and the sequence number in the lower right corner is 1. A Chuck Jones Gallery Letter of Authenticity is included. Very Good condition with minor handling wear.
