    The Little Whirlwind Minnie's Kitchen Painted Pan Background (Walt Disney, 1941). "Hey... I'll clean up your yard!" says Mickey Mouse to Minnie, in an attempt to get a piece of her newly-baked cake sitting on the window sill. This is an outstanding pan hand-painted production background of Minnie's kitchen and the window she places the cake on. It comes from the Riley Thompson-directed short that was released on 2/14/41. This was Mickey's last appearance in a theatrical short wearing red shorts; the cartoon features the new designs of both Mickey and Minnie Mouse. You can see this background around the 1:45 mark into the short. Art is in gouache on background board measuring 34" x 9.5", with a painted area of 26" x 8.5". A stunning piece of artwork in its own right -- perfect to place a cel on! Studio notes are in the border, with studio stamps on the reverse. Tape on border with minor handling and edge wear. Very Good condition.
