FOUR PRELIMINARY PENCIL PRODUCTION DRAWINGS FOR 1960S THE BEATLES CARTOON SERIES
pencil drawings with added pencil colour, each drawing c. 150 x 120mm. (sheets 267 x 330mm.), some annotations at foot of sheet, two leaves of provenance including copy of a letter from Dennis Hunt
These four original sketches are preliminary production drawings for the American TV cartoon series, The Beatles which ran from 1965 to 1969. The series was the first weekly show to feature animated versions of real people.
The sketches were drawn by animator Dennis Hunt who, in addition to working on this cartoon series, also worked on the Beatles Yellow Submarine animated film. As part of the production process the animation artist would draw these sketches, under the guidance of the project's director. The next stage would be that the cells used in the actual film or show would be created based on these pencil sketches.
