    Description

    "Mickey Mouse Club" Promo Film Animation Drawings Sequence of 3 (Walt Disney/United Artists, c. 1929/30). Looking for some rare early Mickey Mouse animation, art? Here are three pieces from a film so rare we didn't even know about it until just recently; in fact, we thought these animation drawings of Mickey came from Around the World in 80 Minutes with Douglas Fairbanks. Turns out these are from a special animation short promoting a "Mickey Mouse Club" shown at local theaters. Here are three rare original 12 field 2-peghole animation drawings from that special short. The drawings all feature full-figure images of Mickey, drawn in graphite. The first is numbered 397, and shows him doing a dance step; image size is 3" x 3.5". The next two drawings, numbered 410 and 413, show our hero down on the ground. We can't locate a copy of this film for viewing, but it appears dancing Mickey made a misstep! The image sizes are 4.75" x 1.5" and 4.5" x 2". Light paper toning and minor handling wear, with an overall condition of Very Good.
