Description

#M43 Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studio, Tom and Jerry – “Mice Follies”, 1954. This detailed background layout drawing of the interior of the refrigerator in the house where Tom and Jerry live was created by a MGM Studio artist in development of a scene in the animated cartoon. Drawn in red, green, yellow and black pencil on a 10 1/2″ x 15.00″ animation sheet, the art measures 9 1/4″ x 16.00″. The art was created in development of the background seen in scenes 7, 43 and 45 of the Tom and Jerry cartoon directed by Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera. Two outlines depict positions Jerry will occupy in the scene, and there are numerous notes to the background painter; Studio production stamp with notations appears in the right margin. Vertical fold at center, pin holes, handling: VERY GOOD condition. Howard Lowery Gallery certificate of authenticity is included. Jerry and his young nephew Nibbles flood the kitchen floor with water, then hook up the refrigerator to create an ice pond. Their fun is cut short when Tom wakes up and, seeing the frozen world, takes up skating. The chase is on.
