    Description

    Mickey's Polo Team Mickey Mouse Production Cel (Walt Disney, 1936). A singular original hand-painted and hand-inked production cel pf Mickey Mouse playing polo. This is a "full" 12 field nitrate sheet, untrimmed! A "206A" is written in the bottom right corner. The short was directed by David Hand and was released on 1/4/36. Art Babbit and Grim Natwick did some of the animation. The short was inspired by Walt Disney's love of polo at the time. The polo teams in the story are the Mickey Mousers (Mickey, Goofy, the Big Bad Wolf, and Donald Duck on a donkey), vs. the Movie Stars (Laurel and Hardy, Harpo Marx, and Charlie Chaplin). Disney characters and other movie stars fill the stands. A great action image of mickey on his charging steed, with mallet. The image measures 7" x 7", with minor paint loss in the red shorts and on the horse's neck. There are small pieces of tape on the borders from a previous framing. Full nitrate cels of Mickey Mouse from this era are incredibly uncommon. In Very Good condition.
