(Bray Studios, 1926) Original 26 ½ in. x 40 in. one-sheet poster with art by Clyde Geronomi, who was also Lantz’s co-animator. Walter Lantz was one of the most prolific and innovative creative forces in the development of animated cartoons as an entertainment medium. Among his earliest work is the Dinky Doodle series (comprising 10 entries) which, like Walt Disney’s “Alice” series of the same time period, mixed live action characters (generally Walter Lantz himself) with animated sequences. An exceedingly rare artifact from the infancy of animated film. On linen with typical, though very light professional retouching, Very Fine.
