    Mr. Bug Goes to Town Script and Studio Record (Max Fleischer, 1941). Following an expensive relocation to Florida, the Fleischer Studios had their hopes pinned on this animated feature to show a profit and pull them out of the red. A planned general release date of Christmas, 1941 was scuttled due to the attack on Pearl Harbor and the subsequent entry of the US in World War II, pushing the opening back several months. When the film finally came out, box office returns were less than anticipated. Still, this was a beautifully animated film that deserved to be seen, one that has slowly but steadily gained fans through the years. Here's a complete original 115-page document with full film credits, working script, and camera shot details for Mr. Bug Goes to Town. The document is printed on 14" x 9" paper, stapled along the left side. Slight handling and edge wear. Also included is a very rare 16" record with a 9:55 preview of songs from the film; this single-sided transcription record was made for commercial use only, and never sold to the public; it comes with its original paper sleeve. Script condition is Very Good with handling and edge wear; record sleeve condition is Good, with brittleness, while record condition is Very Good.
