DescriptionWard Kimball - Max Hare from "Tortoise and the Hare" Animation Model Sheet Original Art (Walt Disney, 1935). This splendid piece features the boisterous and over-confident Max Hare, aka the Blue Streak, from the Disney short "The Tortoise and the Hare." For years there has been speculation that Max might have been a prototype of, or at least an inspiration for, Bugs Bunny. The common factor is that Chuck Thorsen, an early animator for both Walt Disney and Warner Brothers, designed Max, and also an embryonic Bugs. Whatever the facts are, this is a beautiful piece of early Disneyana, in Excellent condition, that will be sure to thrill any lover of animation. This piece is matted and the image area measures 9.5" x 12".
