DescriptionTom and Jerry in The Flying Cat (MGM, 1952). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41")
In one of the best Tom and Jerry cartoons, Jerry comes to the aid of a wayward canary and Tom takes delight in trying to capture both of them. It was the usual sight gags from Hanna and Barbera but in this case, they came faster than the typical cartoon. The scene depicted on this scarce one sheet is from the cartoon's highlight as Tom crafts a pair of wings in order to capture the canary in his nest. Touchup has been applied to fold wear and separation as well as a bit of ink stamp bleedthrough, some of which is still slightly visible. Unaddressed wear includes pinholes, a few unobtrusive stains, some smudges, and small tears. There is slight paper loss in the borders.
Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
