One of the most fun studio fan cards ever, promoting the 1949 debut of two fabulous characters in one fabulous film: The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad. So full of action and excitement, it's hard to resist these 7"x 9" cards for fans who wrote the Walt Disney Studio.
Unlike the flat painted animation cels seen in the movie, promotional materials like this allowed for the characters to be more fully rendered to a higher level of detail.
Artist Hank Porter created the illustration of Toad in his motorcar racing alongside Ichabod Crane and the Headless Horseman, and here is the original sketch! I think it's beautiful.
