#M22 – Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studio, HENPECKED HOBOES, 1946. Expressive original animation drawing of Junior, the marginally smarter partner in Avery’s comedic team of George and Junior. It is a final animation drawing created by an animator in production of the animated cartoon directed by Tex (Fred) Avery during his peak years at MGM, and a cel was made directly from it. Henpecked Hoboes was the first of Avery’s four George and Junior cartoons, and Junior was voiced by Avery himself. Drawn in red and black pencil on an untrimmed animation sheet, the art measures 5 1/4″ x 3 1/2″. The animator wrote the number ‘8’ to indicate this drawing’s place in the scene, and the sheet also bears the MGM stamp that denotes the production and scene numbers. In excellent condition showing only light handling from the animation process itself: VERY FINE. Howard Lowery certificate of authenticity is included. Two hungry hoboes want a chicken dinner. George’s plans for catching a hen are constantly sabotaged by Junior’s detrimental assistance.
