    Description

    Walt Disney "Mousecar" Award (1952). The Disney Studio's version of the Academy Award "Oscar" is the "Mousecar," an in-house award given to employees for service to the company, and the community as a whole. This early version of the award is considered much rarer than company's other award, "The Duckster," of which only ten or so are known to exist. This exceptionally rare early Mousecar Award was presented to Bob Dorfman, head of Disney's New York Publicity Department from 1947 until 1964. The plate on the award reads, "To Bob Dorfman Best Personal Wishes Walt Disney 1952". The statue of Mickey Mouse on its base stands about 8.5" tall; there are a few chips of bronze color missing, mainly on Mickey's nose and one ear; otherwise the condition is Fine. From the Bob Dorfman Collection.
