    Pluto Early Studio Printed Model Sheet and Pluto's Quin-Puplets Animation Drawings Group (Walt Disney, 1931-37). Mickey Mouse's loyal dog made his first Pluto-named appearance in 1931 in The Moose Hunt. Pluto was featured in six theatrical shorts that year. This is a rare Disney Studio model sheet dated September 14, 1931. It is labeled "Pluto - The Pup Model No. 1." This is believed to be his first formal studio model sheet; it features 38 images of Pluto, with Mickey shown with him at the top right. The print measures 11.5" x 15.5" and has a fold crease with splits, along with minor handling and edge wear. This is a very important and historical studio document about the Disney animation process. Also included in this lot are three 12 field 5-peghole animation drawings from the 1937 short Pluto's Quin-Puplets, which was Pluto's first starring role on his own. The puppy drawings are all 2", in graphite and red pencil. Minor handling and edge wear to all. This lot is from the Albert E. Levin Archive. Mr. Levin was a screenwriter and artist who worked at Walt Disney Studios in the 1930s as an In-Betweener. Good overall condition.
