DescriptionMutt and Jeff in Joining the Tanks (Fox, 1918). Very Good/Fine on Linen. One Sheet (28" X 41.25").
Created by Bud Fisher in 1907, Mutt and Jeff quickly became a hit with comic strip readers. It made perfect sense for the pair to make the jump to the screen, and in 1916 Fisher licensed Mutt and Jeff to animators Raoul Barre and Charles Bowers. The result was a series that lasted 11 years with more than 300 shorts being produced. Excellent stone litho artwork shows the mismatched duo rendering their form of justice in rich, vibrant color. Professionally restored, corrections have been made to tearing and small chips in the interior. There was some paper loss in the upper left corner, in the right background, and in the lower left, which extended into the credits and "J" and "O" of "Joining." The borders, parts of the background, and part of the title have been airbrushed.
Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
