Elmer Elephant (1936)

Elmer Elephant (1936)
original production animation drawing
pencil on untrimmed animation sheet, image size: 6.5" x 10.5"
This lively final animation drawing of the fire chief racing to the rescue of Tillie Tiger was created by a Disney Studio animator in production of the animated cartoon, and a cel painting was made directly from it. Wilfred Jackson directed this superb Silly Symphony in which the animals at Tillie's birthday party make Elmer the object of their jokes and ridicule. When the cute tiger is trapped by fire in her treetop home, all the animals run to help, including the monkey fire chief in his ostrich-drawn cart. Of course, Elmer saves the day and gets a kiss from the grateful Tillie. The animator wrote the studio designation “1C” at lower right to indicate this original's place in the scene.
