    McDonald's Playland Professor Design Drawings Original Art Group of 3 (McDonald's/Setmakers, 1970s). Here is a collection of three original sculpting details for the Professor's head which graced the top of assorted McDonald's Playland slides and rides. The first two designs show a front, side, and rear view of the character wearing a large bowler hat along with design notes and scale measurements. The images measure 11" x 4" each, with an overall measurement of 11.5" x 16", on 19" x 24" vellum. They are dated 1/13/72 and 1/12/72 respectively. The third drawing is a revised version of the first two, now depicting the Professor without a hat. It too features three different views and the images measure 5.5" x 4", each with an overall measurement of 5.5" x 16", on 19" x 24" vellum. This drawing is dated 5/15/73. All three pieces show handling wear, creases, and edge wear; otherwise, condition is Very Good.
