DescriptionMickey's Garden Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1935).
Mickey's garden is being invaded by insects in Walt Disney's 1935 animated short, Mickey's Garden, directed by Wilfred Jackson and released on 7/13/35. In an attempt to stop the invasion and rid his garden of the pesky bugs, Mickey uses insecticide, but accidentally gets dosed by his own bug spray, after which he begins having wild hallucinations. In this rare original animation drawing, we see Mickey filling his bug sprayer with the insecticide. These images start around the 2:31 mark. Disney Legend Inductee and one of "Walt's Nine Old Men" Ollie Johnston did the layouts for this short while Walt Disney provided the voice for Mickey Mouse. The image was rendered in graphite with color pencils on 12 field, 2-peghole animation paper. The drawing is numbered 33H, with Mickey measuring 3.5" tall. Light age-related paper toning and minor handling wear. Condition is Very Good.
