Today, a little gallery of art – courtesy of Mike Van Eaton, animation art dealer extraordinaire – of MGM Cartoon title cards, circa 1939-40. Mike calls me over to the gallery whenever something like this comes his way. This group of originals was acquired a few years ago – and I don’t know if he still has any of these left for sale, but I thank him for allowing me to take these images.
