    Description

    Krazy Kat (Columbia, 1934). Stock One Sheet (27" X 41"). Krazy Kat, the lovestruck paramour of the brick-throwing Ignatz Mouse, was the creation of cartoonist George Herriman, and was featured in a long-running comic strip, now considered to be one of the greatest examples of that art form. The earliest animated efforts featuring Herriman's romantic feline were produced in 1916 by William Randolph Hearst, without Herriman's involvement. In 1925, animator Bill Nolan brought his own version of Krazy Kat to the screen, a version definitely not based on Herriman's creation. Nolan's version took far more from that "other" popular cartoon cat, Felix. The design of Nolan's Kat would change even more throughout the early Thirties, eventually becoming the more Mickey Mouse-like character pictured here. Soon, Krazy would become one of the most popular animated characters of all time, along with Mickey and Betty Boop, and continues to influence artists and animators to this day. There is a small edge tear on the top left corner of this attractive stock one sheet, a chip on the bottom right corner, fold line wear with small amounts of paper loss on the top fold, an extra horizontal fold, a small tear on the center fold, and small tape scuffs on the left border. This is by far the best stock one sheet made for this kartoon kat, one of Columbia's classic animated characters. Very Fine on Linen.
