#M23 – Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studio, DEPUTY DROOPY, 1955. Here are two (2) matching original animation drawings of Slim and Shorty, the two inept outlaws in this Droopy Western cartoon, the last cartoon in the series directed by Tex (Fred) Avery during his great period at MGM. They are final animation drawings created by animators in production of the animated cartoon, and cels were made directly from them. The cels made from them appear together in the film. Drawn in red, blue and black pencil on untrimmed animation sheets, the art measures 7.50″ x 3.00″ and 3 1/2″ x 3 1/4″. The animator wrote the numbers ’10A’ and ’10C’ to indicate the drawings’ places 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 villains are repeatedly trying to steal gold from a safe in the Sheriff’s office, and must do so without waking the sleeping Sheriff. Droopy makes it all that more difficult for them, though.
