    Captain Crook Concept/Design Original Art Group of 3 (McDonald's/Setmakers, c. 1970s). In the early days of McDonaldland, Captain Crook was a pirate obsessed with Filet-O-Fish sandwiches. Here is a set of three original graphite concept drawings featuring this enduring McDonaldland character from those days. The first is a concept drawing for a Playland diorama featuring a three dimensional Captain with a treasure trove of sandwiches. The art measures 11.5" x 18" on 19" x 23.5" vellum. The second and third drawings are nearly identical wall plaque designs of the Captain fishing for his favorite meal. The first includes shading, and measures 9" x 13" on 17" x 22" vellum. Quarter-inch paper tape frames the image and a Setmakers logo is applied to to the lower right corner which is stamped January 30, 1974. The third drawing is a repeat of the second without shading and slightly larger measuring 9" x 18" on 16.6" x 24" vellum. All the pieces show handling and edge wear, and small tears. Condition is Very Good.
