Alice in Wonderland HANNA-BARBERA STUDIO

Alice in Wonderland (1966)
original production animation character drawing
pencil and watercolor on 10" x 12.25" paper, image size: 7.5" x 10"
These original animation character drawings of Alice and Fluff were created by a Hanna-Barbera Studio artist in development of the characters for the animated television special based on the stories of Lewis Carroll and subtitled What's a Nice Kid Like You Doing in a Place Like This? A comedic and hip version for the '60s, the show featured new music and songs by Lee Adams and Charles Strouse plus voice talent including Bill Dana, Sammy Davis, Jr., Zsa Zsa Gabor, Harvey Korman, Daws Butler, Don Messick, Alan Reed and others. These drawings were created early in development, and producer David Sontag circled, OK'd and initialed two of the images of Fluff. He wrote the number "7" at upper right. Alice ended as a more conventional-looking blonde for the show. Included is a photocopy of a 1995 letter from Mr. Sontag describing his role in development of the special.
