    Description

    Mickey's Elephant (L'Éléphant de Mickey) Ensemble de 2 dessins d'animation de Mickey et Bobo (Walt Disney, 1936). Dans cette scène à 1'08", Mickey vient de terminer une maison pour son éléphant Bobo. Le lot est constitué de deux dessins d'animation originaux sur feuille perforée pour ce court métrage réalisé par Dave Hand et dans lequel intervient également Pluto. Les deux dessins sont à la mine de plomb et au crayon rouge. Celui de Mickey en pied fait 9 cm de haut et comporte le numéro 60 en bas à droite. Celui de Bobo fait 12,7 cm de haut et porte le numéro 7 en bas à droite. Bobo était censé devenir un personnage régulier chez Disney, et un court métrage de Bobo et Pluto avait été démarré au milieu des années 1950 mais fut abandonné lorsque le studio décida de cesser les courts métrages pour se concentrer sur les longs métrages. Les deux dessins sont en bon état avec de très légères traces de manipulation.
    Mickey's Elephant Mickey Mouse and Bobo Animation Drawings Group of 2 (Walt Disney, 1936). In this scene from the 1:08 mark, Mickey has just completed construction of a new house for his pet elephant Bobo. This is a matching pair of original 12 field 5-peghole animation drawings from this Dave Hand-directed short, co-starring Pluto. The drawings are rendered in graphite with red pencil shadows. The full-figure Mickey measures 3.5" tall and has the number 60 in the lower right corner. Bobo measures 5" tall with the number 7 in the lower right. Bobo was originally planned to be a recurring character for Disney and a Bobo and Pluto short was in development in the mid '50s. It was ultimately scrapped when the studio decided to stop producing cartoon shorts to focus on feature films. Both drawings show very light handling and condition is Fine.
