Country Cousin 1936 Disney Monty Silly Symphony Production Cel Drawing 23
THE COUNTRY COUSIN
Walt Disney's 1936 Silly Symphony
MONTY MOUSE (the city mouse)
Original animation production drawing
Winner of the 1936 Academy Award for best animated short film
DOUBLE MATTED AND READY TO FRAME, with COA
NICE RARE FIND! Almost 80 years old! Animated by Art Babbitt and Les Clark and directed by Wilfred Jackson, this is one of Walt Disney's Silly Symphonies and one of my personal favorites (Charles here). I can remember watching this as a child - though I'm not nearly as old as it's first air date, it was popular for decades after. A charming tale of the country mouse coming to the city. This wonderful drawing is of MONTY the city mouse. We believe this is the shot of him from the perspective of his cousin after he's fallen into a drink and gotten drunk! So see the screen shots above.
The drawing is in great shape - with just a bit of warm age yellowing (our scanner struggled capturing the correct color on this one - the matted view is most accurate). We'll also include a Charles Scott Gallery COA. View the full short on you-tube.
We've mounted this gorgeous piece of hand-drawn art in an acid-free, 4-ply double paper mat that measures 11" x 14" - so just buy your own frame and hang it in your home gallery. Note: we only use archival/acid-free materials in mounting your artwork.
SHIPPING COST INCLUDES PRIORITY SHIPPING AND INSURANCE!
Actually used in the making of the cartoon and great for collectors or to hang on your wall as nostalgic decoration! For more information about collecting animation art, please visit our website at www.charlesscottgallery.com.
