Although Walt wanted his new character to be called Tramp, the animators feared that audiences would take offense in such a name, due to the word's sexual connotations that had been popularized by the song The Lady Is A Tramp. The animators first called the character Rags, then Bozo; before Walt insisted that that name Tramp would be acceptable.
Tramp is a very laid-back dog and acts more like a kid. He's flirtatious and has history of having had a multitude of girlfriends; and he's known for his street smarts, able to both avoid dog catchers and deal with junkyard dogs.
However, he dreams about living with a family and in a loving home. Tramp was animated by Ollie Johnston, Milt Kahl, and Wolfgang Reitherman who animated the rat fight scene. Larry Roberts (1926 - 1992) was an American voice actor and comedian who was most active in the 1950s. Although he was well known for his role in the 1950s TV series Lights, Camera, Action!He is best remembered for his role of the voice of Tramp. This is a wonderful full figure original production drawing of Tramp, eyes open, and rendered in brown and graphite pencils. A great addition to any animation art collection!
