    Description

    Winsor McCay Award Presented to Art Babbitt (Art Babbitt Estate, 1974). The Winsor McCay Award is a lifetime achievement award for animation that is given out at the Annie Awards hosted by ASIFA Hollywood. The Award started in 1972, and the first recipients were Dave and Max Fleischer. The second year it went to Walter Lantz. In its third year it was bestowed upon Tex Avery, Friz Freleng, Chuck Jones, Winsor McCay, and Art Babbitt. It's interesting to note that Walt Disney did not get one until the following year. Generally considered a treasured family heirloom, these awards rarely come up for sale, especially from someone of Art Babbitt's importance to the field of animation. The plaque reads "1974 Art Babbitt The Winsor McCay Award For 50 Years Dedication to the Art of Animation International Animated Film Society (ASIFA Hollywood)". It measures 9" x 4.5" and the zoetrope top does spin. The original program for the award ceremony is included and provides an interesting glimpse of the animation industry circa 1974. Condition is Very Good. From the Art Babbitt Archives.
