Los Angeles: Twentieth Century-Fox, 1991. An extensive archive of 26 scripts and related production memoranda for 19 episodes of the hit animated sitcom "The Simpsons," dating from the 1990 and 1991 second and third seasons. Collection belonging to Gracie Films Animation Production Manager Ken Tsumura, with his notations throughout, his name highlighted on multiple memos, and his signature to a number of delivery receipts. The longest-running, most successful, and arguably most influential comedy in television history, "The Simpsons" third season remains largely regarded as one of its best, in which the characters finally settled into their various personalities and the show's producers were free to move towards more satirical episode content. To date "The Simpsons" has won 31 Prime Time Emmy Awards and myriad other accolades, including a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and has been rated highly on "Best Of" lists from the likes of Entertainment Weekly, television Guide, Time magazine, the Writers Guild of America, and more. The third season would be the final one for animation production company Klasky Csupo, as in 1992 parent production company Gracie Films moved their domestic animation to Film Roman. This archive contains hundreds of pages of production notes, including script and voiceover changes, edits required for certain animation sequences, and frequent memorandum correspondence between Klasky Csupo and Gracie Films, offering insight into the complex negotiations involved between the two companies. Episodes included in the archive are as follows: "Dead Putting Society," "Itchy & Scratchy & Marge," "Lisa's Pony," "Bart Gets Hit by a Car," "Oh Brother, Where Art Thou," "Like Father, Like Clown," "Old Money," "Lisa's Substitute," "Principal Charming," "Saturdays of Thunder," "Flaming Moe's," "A Streetcar Named Marge," "One Fish, Two Fish, Blowfish Blue Fish," "Old Money," "Brush with Greatness," "Bart the Murderer," "Colonel Homer," "Black Widower," and "Homer Defined." Housed in six three-ring binders, with front and rear wrappers present for most scripts. Heavy dampstaining to one of the binders and its contents (though still quite readable), else the collection is largely in Very Good plus condition. Collation details available upon request.

Michael Bond - the man behind Paddington Bear

"All the same ... it's a very important name. And I don't expect there are many bears in the world called Paddington!"

A lonely toy bear on an empty shop shelf on Christmas Eve in 1956 first captured the attention of Michael Bond, who kindly shared Paddington with the world.
