Pinocchio (1940)

Pinocchio (1940) 
original production animation drawing
red, green and black pencil on untrimmed animation sheet, image size: 3" x 2.25"
This original final animation drawing of Jiminy Cricket was created by a Disney Studio animator in production of the animated feature, and a cel painting was made directly from it. In the scene set atop the pool table on Pleasure Island, Jiminy scolds Pinocchio and Lampwick for their delinquent behavior: "Heh! Heh! Go on - make a jackass out of yourself...I'm through! This is the end!" Jiminy's words are prophetic, for only a few scenes later the boys begin the transformation into donkeys in one of the most poignant episodes in Disney animation. Ward Kimball, one of Walt Disney's Nine Old Men and two-time Academy Award-winner for direction of Toot, Whistle, Plunk and Boom (1953) and It's Tough to Be a Bird (1969), supervised the animation of this scene. The underdrawing in red pencil is Mr. Kimball's work. The animator wrote the studio designation “27” at lower right to indicate this original's place in the scene. Studio stamp at lower right denotes production, sequence and scene numbers.
