    Disney Studio Gag Drawings of Joe Rinaldi Original Art Group of 8 (Walt Disney, c. 1940s). Disney animation artists had a tradition of using down time to create funny caricatures of their co-workers, and here's a group of original drawings with story artist Joe Rinaldi (1914 - 1974) as the primary subject. The drawings depict Joe as a "white knight" (with the caption "That they too may believe"); being thrown to the lions in Ancient Rome; two drawings as a saintly priest; a lecherous priest, chasing a woman; a pretty boy; a fat slob; and one female drawing (Mrs. Rinaldi?). Funny stuff in pastels on 12 field 5-peghole animation paper. Light paper toning, handling and edge wear, with tack holes and small edge tears on s few. Good overall condition. From the Joe Rinaldi Estate.
