Three Little Wolves (1936)

Three Little Wolves (1936)
original production animation drawing
red and black pencil on untrimmed animation sheet, image size: 5" x 3"
This original final animation drawing of Fifer and Fiddler Pigs was created by Disney Studio animator Frank Thomas in production of the animated Silly Symphony cartoon directed by Dave Hand, and a cel painting was made directly from it.Frank Thomas, one of Walt Disney's master animators known as his Nine Old Men, was an assistant animator to Fred Moore on this picture; he drew this original and initialed the sheet at lower right. Mr. Thomas signed the art in full below the image at a later date.
The cartoon opens with the Big Bad Wolf lecturing his three unruly sons on the fine art of roasting tender porkers; after they shoot him with their slingshots, two go into a dance while the third pipes "Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?" That scene fades into Fifer and Fiddler Pigs dancing in a circle while playing the same famous tune on their pipe and fiddle. The animator wrote the studio designation "238” at lower right to indicate this original's place in the scene; handwritten studio notation at upper right identifies the production and scene number: "S-32 - Sc 11 / #200-#238.
