    The Worm Turns Layout Drawing (Walt Disney, 1937). This Ben Sharpsteen-directed short stared Mickey Mouse, Pluto, and Pete... as a dog catcher! In this film, Mickey plays a mad scientist of sorts who creates a "Courage Builder" potion. The potion is so strong that not only does it turn the very meek Pluto into an "attack dog," it also causes a fire hydrant to spring to life after it is applied! This is an amazing background layout sheet, which depicts the street on which Pete will chase after Pluto. The graphite drawing is an amazing 48" long! The entire paper with studio notes attached on the side is an unheard of 67" x 9"! Look closely to see the billboard in which Goofy promotes "Aristro Dog Food"! The notes beneath the billboard say, "Keep sign faint and blurred." Impressive detail on the houses and the street. This very long layout drawing has been folded in six places; minor handling and edge wear. An enormous drawing -- and an unusual piece of Disney studio history! In Good condition.
