    Description

    Looney Tune Cartoon Stock Poster (Warner Brothers, 1934). One Sheet (27" X 41") "Buddy and Cookie." In poster collecting, there is "scarce," "rare," and "...gosh, I've never seen one of those!" This is one of "those." It is a 1934 poster put up by theaters when they would receive one of the two dozen "Buddy" cartoons made between late 1933 and 1935. It represents an important transitional period in animation history. When Hugh Harman and Rudolph Ising of "Bosko" fame left Warner's in late 1933 due to a contract dispute, Leon Schlesinger formed the now infamous "Termite Terrace" animation studio on Warner's back lot. Buddy was a character in his own class, far gentler than most inhabitants of Toontown, and a guy with a big heart. He and the beautiful Cookie would fill in admirably until the arrival in 1935 of the age of wacky with the development of Porky Pig via Chuck Jones and Bob Clampett. Not to say Buddy didn't have his own great sense of humor; he did. He pre-crossdressed Bugs Bunny (Buddy's Beer Garden, 1933)! This restored poster displays very well. The color is excellent and fresh with some touch-up in the center crossfold. Originally there were pinholes, minor fold separations, and edge wear. This absolute charmer will brighten any wall, from stateroom to nursery. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
