    Description

    Jerry's Diary (MGM, 1949). One Sheet (27" X 41"). During the early phase of their careers, before they founded the famous studio that bore their names, animators William Hanna and Joseph Barbera worked for MGM, where they created the cat and mouse duo Tom and Jerry. Originally appearing in the 1939 short "Puss Gets the Boot," Tom and Jerry were an instant hit, and MGM quickly assigned the pair to produce more "cat and mouse" cartoons. The result was 114 Tom and Jerry cartoons and seven Academy Awards for Best Short Subject (Cartoons), a record equaled only by Walt Disney Studios for their "Silly Symphonies." This particular short finds Tom looking through Jerry's diary, an excellent opportunity to present clips from past shows, ending up with Jerry receiving a pie in the face. This luscious original one sheet, which features both Tom and Jerry, displays pinholes in the top corners with some small tears, pinholes in the bottom left, a misfold on the lower horizontal fold, corner bends in the top and bottom left, a small tear in the bottom right border, and a small tear at the top. In spite of these minor flaws, this is still a very appealing and attractive poster. Very Fine-.
