Alice in Wonderland (1951)

Alice in Wonderland (1951)
original production animation drawing
pencil on animation sheet trimmed to 12" x 15.5", image size: 5.5" x 9"
This original rough animation drawing of Tweedle-Dee and Tweedle-Dum was created by Disney animator Ward Kimball in development of a scene in the animated feature based on the tales of Lewis Carroll. In this scene the madcap twins respond when Alice, after reading of their names from their collars, pokes Dee's still figure: "If you think we're waxworks, you ought to pay, you know," says Dee, to which Dum adds "Contrariwise, if you think we're alive you ought to speak to us." Walt Disney's great animator and director Ward Kimball, one of his Nine Old Men, supervised the animation of these characters and this scene; this animator's extreme drawing, with grid at right, is undoubtedly his work. The animator wrote the designation "36" at lower right to indicate this original's place in the scene. Our certificate of authenticity is included.
Paper has turned tan at edges yet is not at all brittle; there is creasing along the top above the images; light handling; : FINE condition.
