DescriptionMickey's Fire Brigade Mickey Mouse Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1935).
Mickey's Fire Brigade, the 1935 animated short subject film directed by Ben Sharpsteen and released on 8/3/35, features three bungling firefighters, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and Goofy. Their task is to rescue Clarabelle Cow from a burning hotel -- without interrupting her bath! In this drawing we see Mickey wrestling with a firehose that seemingly has a mind of its own. Mickey's Fire Brigade used 16 animators plus Milt Kahl working as an inbetweener. You will see this image around the 2:17 mark in the short. The drawing was rendered in graphite with colored pencil on 12 field 2-peghole animation paper and noted as number 58 in the bottom right corner. Minor age-related paper toning and handling, with two pegholes reinforced. Condition is Very Good.
