Description (from Howard
The Great Mouse Detective (1986)
original production animation drawing
blue and black pencil on untrimmed animation sheet, image size: 7" x 7.5"

This original rough animation drawing of the villain Ratigan was created by Disney animator Phil Nibbelink in development of a scene in the animated feature. Mr. Nibbelink was an animator for Disney on this film, The Fox and the Hound (1981), The Black Cauldron (1985), and Oliver & Company (1988). He was a directing animator for Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988).

The artist signed his drawing below the image and wrote the circled number "R-97" at lower right to indicate this original's place in the scene. Our certificate of authenticity is included.

VERY FINE condition.
