Full-figure original animation drawing depicts the ‘Truant Officer’ (Meathead), in this film playing the role of a truant officer, who stars with Screwy Squirrel in three of his first four cartoons. 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. Drawn in pencil on an untrimmed animation sheet, the art measures 4.75″ x 6.75″. The animator wrote the number ’31’ to indicate this drawing’s place in the scene, and the sheet also bears the MGM stamp that denotes the production and scene numbers.
