Lot Details
A miscellaneous group of Terrytoons and Famous Studio drawings
1940s, pencil on paper, the lot comprises two rough Famous Studio drawings of Popeye and Olive Oyl, two colored pencil Terrytoons drawings of a mouse, and six Terrytoons colored pencil drawings of a fox, hound and horseback rider.

In the early 1920s, Tytla began his animation career with Terrytoons. By 1929, he quit his job and decided to go to Paris to study art along with fellow commercial artists. Upon his return to the United States, he was hired by the Disney Studios in the 1930s and continued working with them until 1943. With his last couple of years at the Disney Studio, Tytla was not content due to the firing of his close colleague, Art Babbit, as a result of the 1941 strike. After the strike, there was a lot of tension in the studio and it was not an easy place to work. When Tytla left the studio, he was quickly hired by Terrytoons and then by Paramount/Famous Studios.
