    Walt Disney Hyperion Studios Original Animation Board (Walt Disney Hyperion, 1939). The original Walt Disney Hyperion Studios was on Hyperion Avenue, between Griffith Park Boulevard and Monon Street and was operated from 1929-1939. It housed 1,500 employees and was bursting at the seems until the studio moved to Burbank. This lot is one of the few known animation boards from the Disney Hyperion Studios to still exist. It was used by Andy Engman (1911-2004) who began work at the Studio in 1937 and worked for Disney until 1971. He animated on everything from Snow White up through Jungle Book and did a great deal of animation on Donald Duck and Goofy shorts until he moved into the Special Effects Department. The animation board comes with a letter in which Andy writes "To whom it may concern, This is the Animation Board I used at the old Disney Studio, on Hyperion Blvd, from 1937 to the end of 1939." Wood frame with light intact, with original glass. The dimensions are approximately 28" x 17". In Fragile but Good condition. A real tangible piece of Disney Animated Film making history!
