    Description

    Looney Tunes "The Haunted Mouse" (Warner Brothers, 1941). Title Snipe (7.75" X 8.5"). Animated.
    This is an original 1941 title snipe that was pasted onto the Warner Bros. stock poster. Long revered by animation collectors, the "Looney Tunes" were a rambunctious send-up of the more sedate Disney "Silly Symphonies." The cartoon itself is by the ever hilarious Tex Avery and the snipe features a ghost mouse tormenting a hungry cat! These snipes can be even rarer than the one sheets, because many times they were either peeled off the stock sheet, or simply pasted over with the next week's title snipe. This one is in an unused condition, and is just about as good as it gets. It would be a terrific display matted by itself, or affixed to a blank stock sheet. There is only some minor edge wear with a mild crease and a tiny tear in the top right border. Please see full-color, enlargeable image below for more details. Very Fine.
