    George Pal Puppetoon Stock (Paramount, 1944). One Sheet (27" X 41") "Jasper and the Beanstalk."
    Years before he became renowned the world over for sci-fi classics such as War of the Worlds, The Time Machine, When Worlds Collide, etc., George Pal was in Hollywood making "Puppetoons" for Paramount. Pal was a pioneer in the field of stop-motion animation. His "replacement technique" involved separate puppets for each motion, up to 12 pairs of legs just for one walking character. An average feature used literally thousands of puppets. This rare one sheet, with an even rarer attached snipe, is for one of the "Jasper, the African Boy" cartoons. A racist by no means, Pal was thoroughly saddened when called such. He intended the character to be wide-eyed, with an innocent view of the world, much like himself. The one sheets from Pal's work remain interesting and collectible artifacts. There are pinholes throughout, edge wear with tears at the folds, a smudging in the image, fold wear with small chips and crossfold separations, and paper tape on the top border on the verso. Fine.
