"A Kick In Time" (1940) - Sunky Model Sheet Signed by John Walworth

This was a nice little piece that I stumbled upon. At the time, most were interested in collecting Disney and not many were aware of Fleischer. I thought the angles were interesting (I had not seen many model sheets) and the expressions were great.

This was Walworth's second film. He worked on "Mr. Bug..." next, Casper and a host of other popular characters. Later, he was credited as designing a number of the toys found in Cracker Jack boxes...
