Alice in Wonderland

Alice in Wonderland (1951) 
original production animation drawing
red and black pencil on untrimmed animation sheet, image size: 3" x 3"
This polished rough animation drawing of Alice was created by a Disney animator in development of a scene in Walt Disney's animated feature based on the stories by Lewis Carroll. During her trial before the King and Queen of Hearts, Alice eats part of a mushroom, grows to a great height, then shrinks back to normal proportions. The Cheshire Cat quotes Alice's description of the Queen as "a fat, pompous, bad-tempered, old tyrant," so the Queen once again yells: "Off with her head!" Animator Harvey Toombs supervised the animation of Alice standing in the prisoner's dock as the cards swarm overhead, and this is undoubtedly one of his drawings. Mr. Toombs' first animated for Disney on Pinocchio (1940) (uncredited) and for the next 20 years served as character animator on shorts and features through 1959's Sleeping Beautyand How to Have an Accident in the Home with Donald Duck. The animator wrote the designation "11" at lower right to indicate this original's place in the scene.
