    Fantasia Mickey Mouse as the Sorcerer's Apprentice Animation Drawings Sequence of 4 (Walt Disney, 1940). Mickey Mouse falls asleep in the Sorcerer's chair with the Sorcerer's magic hat upon his head, conducting the brooms and buckets to their (his) work load. He awakens to see that the marching brooms are dumping two buckets of water at a time, badly flooding the room. In a panic, Mickey grabs a bucket and tries to bail water out of a nearby window. His one bucket is no match for ALL the brooms with two buckets each! He is soon underwater in his efforts. You can see this image of Mickey trying to bail water around the 7:14 mark into the segment. Here is a rare series of four 16 field 5-peghole animation roughs from the hand of Preston Blair (1908 - 1995). Graphite with slight red pencil highlights, with amazing images measuring 5" - 7" each -- all featuring Mickey with the Sorcerer's magic hat on. An important sequence in this segment, with Mickey in what most fans consider his all-time greatest role. All four drawings are in one common Plexiglas-front frame measuring 51" x 15", with mat openings of 9" x 9.5". Frame is sold as-is. Minor handling and edge wear. In Very Good condition.
