    Description

    Virgil Ross - Sylvester "Model Sheet" Drawing Original Art (Warner Brothers, c. 1990s). "I tawt i taw a putty tat" was the phrase coined by Tweety Bird, often to describe the arrival of Sylvester the Cat - Tweety's arch-rival. This model sheet-style drawing shows multiple poses and expressions for Sylvester. The art was created by longtime Warner Brothers animator Virgil Ross (1907 - 1996), who was well-known for his action and dance sequences, and funny facial expressions. He worked on more than 230 cartoons with the Friz Freleng unit. Several of the cartoons he worked on were nominated for Academy Awards, and Mr. Ross himself was given the prestigious Winsor McCay Award in 1988. This artwork is on 16 field 3-peghole animation paper. Seven images range in size from 3" to 7". It is signed in the lower aspect. Fine condition.
