Hand-drawn animation strip book. Red and grey pencil. Twenty-three stapled leaves with a drawing to the recto of each. Very good condition with old staple holes to the left-hand margin, an old punch hole to the lower left corner, the first and last page loose, and minor wear to the extremities. The drawings remain clean and bright.
A highly accomplished series of drawings, similar to the style of Disney, from the early days of British animation. Produced by a professional illustrator, they humorously depict the drunken misadventures of a cat, including his encounter with an angry mouse, his mistaking a dog for a barrel of beer, and his hallucination of female cat that turns out to be a less than happy cow. A complete story in itself, the characterful, inventive drawings wonderfully convey the sense of movement of the finished cartoon.
