    Plane Crazy Mickey Mouse Animation Drawing by Ub Iwerks (Walt Disney, 1928-29). Presented in this lot is an original animation drawing of Mickey Mouse by Ub Iwerks (1901 - 1971). The Mickey Mouse short Plane Crazy was first shown as a silent film to a test audience on May 15, 1928, so it was technically the first-ever Mickey cartoon. Co-directed by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks (who reportedly worked six straight weeks on the film, with help from Hugh Harmon and Rudolph Ising), sound was added, and the film was released to the general public on March 17, 1929 as the fourth Mickey cartoon, after Steamboat Willie, The Gallopin' Gaucho, and The Barn Dance. Ub Iwerks was inducted into Disney hall of fame program along with the inaugural class of 1989 which included all nine of "Walt's Nine Old Men". Rendered in graphite on 12-field, 2-peghole animation paper and noted as number 332 in the bottom right, this piece, from the hand of Ub Iwerks, is floated in a frame of 20" x 18". The frame has a matboard aperture of 12.25" x 9.75". Frame sold as-is. There's a tear in the bottom left and along the right edge. The piece also has a water stain on the top right corner. Condition is Good.
