    Description

    Walt Disney Studios - "The Country Cousin" Original Pencil Animation Drawings (Walt Disney, 1937). This series of seven sketches comes from the Academy Award-winning cartoon, "The Country Cousin," directed by Wilfred Johnson, and animated by Art Babbett and Les Clark. In this fan-favorite, country mouse Abner is invited to move to the big city by his cousin, Monty. Abner soon learns that the hidden dangers of city life are not for him. In the sequence shown in these drawings, Abner is reacting to his own reflection in a giant Jello mold. This is the famous cartoon where Abner crawls into a glass of wine and gets "tipsy", a scene later cut from most prints. These seven sketches are all drawn on standard five-hole 12" x 10" Disney animation sheets. They are fine-tuned with graphite over red pencil. This is an example of how Disney animation art was used to stretch and squeeze a character out of shape and then put him back to regular height and model sheet stature. The sheets are all in Excellent condition, with only minor age discoloration along the edges. For Disney collectors, winning this fabulous lot will create a smile as wide as a country mile!
