Silly Symphonies Sheets: CHOICE Peculiar Penguins Only One Left (Elmer Elephant, Tortoise & Hare) Ruth Plumly Thompson


In stock


UPDATE: Only “Peculiar Penguins” sheet is still available…

Oz author Ruth Plumly Thompson was very prolific, and also wrote uncredited text for Disney in the 30’s. These efforts included various  McKay-published books “from a Walt Disney Silly Symphony” and “by the staff of Walt Disney studios” in 1934 and 1935. The Autumn 1991 Baum Bugle checklist confirms that Thompson wrote Peculiar Penguins, The Tortoise and the Hare and “probably” wrote Elmer Elephant as well.

These one-sheet poems were published in magazines in the mid 30’s “from the Walt Disney Silly Symphony”. The colorful art is very similar to that in the books and it’s reasonable to assume Thompson wrote the poetry as well, as she best knew the stories and worked for Disney at the time. Price is for ONE of the individual sheets. Size is 8″ x 11 1/2″ and they are in good to very good condition with light wear.
