More Van Eaton Goodies

Mike Van Eaton comes up with animation odds and ends all the time. I have no purpose in posting these except that I find them fascinating and I know there are at least twelve of you out there who might find these equally interesting. Click the thumbnails below to examine them at large size. The first one (below left) is some sort of Christmas card to Ub Iwerks from his staff (note signatures from Irv Spence, Lou Zukor, Brad Case, Jerry Hathcock and what I assume are ink & paint staff). The next item is the cover (below center) and program interior (below right) for the Schlesinger studio’s Sketch Pad Varieties, written by Chuck Jones and starring several familiar staffers. This was the “second annual revue” – I wonder how many of these they performed? And wouldn’t it be cool to find Jones’ script for this play?
