"Elmer Elephant" (1936) [Series] - 1st and 2nd Generation Stat Model Sheets

More from Elmer Elephant...

There are some 1st and 2nd generation stat model sheets from "Elmer Elephant." There is nothing "wrong" about picking up any of the early "stat" copies made by the Studio. Still great images and there were certainly a limited number of copies made...

  1. These are great; the characters in this short film have a distinctive appearance, as far as I can recall they are unlike any other Disney characters. Wonder who designed them?

  2. According to the book 'Cartoon Chartlie: The Life and art of animation pioneer Charles Thorson', odds are it was, well, Charles Thorson who designed Elmer and pals.
