    Walt Disney Studios - Model Sheet for Silly Symphonies "Babes in the Woods" Original Art (Walt Disney, 1932). If the characters on this pen and ink model sheet look familiar to you, chances are you are thinking of the first full-length animated feature from the Walt Disney studios, "Snow White." This is from an earlier film, and a very significant one: "Babes in the Woods" (a retelling of the old Hansel and Gretel fairy tale) was the first color cartoon in the Silly Symphonies series. The cartoon was directed by Burt Gillett; this model sheet featuring several elves and the old witch (brandishing a bottle of poison in one pose) looks like the work of Dick Lundy. Drawn on a sheet of heavy paper measuring approximately 8.75" x 11.25", the page was then top-mounted onto another sheet of 9.5" x 12" paper with peg-holes at the top. The art has a couple of very minor stains and has toned with age, but overall remains in Excellent condition.
