Image of the Day: One Froggy Evening

 

ONFR-01-006 copy

Earliest known original model drawing by Chuck Jones for his 1955 masterpiece, "One Froggy Evening."  Graphite on 12 field two-hole punch animation paper.  Warner Bros. Animation Studio stopped using the two-hole punched paper circa 1953, two years before the release of this National Film Registry selection (of course, it's possible that there was two-hole punched paper used as scrap after the transition to three-hole punch paper, but note that it took, on average, 10 months to complete a 6-8 minute short film.)
