    Description

    Pigs is Pigs (RKO, 1954). One Sheet (27" X 41"). In this delightful short, based on the story by Ellis Parker Butler, Flannery, a station master, receives a shipment of guinea pigs and, declaring that "pigs is pigs," demands that they be paid for at the livestock rate of 48 cents each, rather than the pet rate of 44 cents each. McMorehouse, the parsimonious customer, refuses to pay the extra charge and leaves the animals with Flannery, which is fine until the inevitable piglets begin to arrive. This splendid cartoon from the Disney studios features Thurl Ravenscroft, best known as the voice of Tony the Tiger, in an uncredited singing role, as well as the film debut of famed announcer Gary Owens as the Narrator. The lovely one sheet offered here had crossfold separation and a few pinholes in the image area, all of which have been rendered virtually invisible by expert professional restoration. This beautiful piece will be a wonderful addition to any collection. Very Fine on Linen.
