DescriptionBoat Builders Goofy Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1938). "Hyuck! She wants to play!" Yet another directorial effort from the indefatigable Ben Sharpsteen, Boat Builders concerns the attempts of Mickey, Donald, and Pluto to assemble a "do-it-yourself" boat construction kit. Advertised as being "so simple, a child could do it", they quickly turn the project into a disaster - as only they can. When the boat, named the Queen Minnie, is christened by Miss Minnie Mouse, the impact of the champagne bottle causes the rickety vessel to fall apart! Near the end of the film, Goofy mistakes a mermaid figurehead for a live woman - a woman with amorous intentions! As she "leads" him across the deck in a flirtatious game of tag, Goofy somehow fails to notice that she is simply an inanimate object being carried to her spot by his good friend Mickey. "The Goof" stands 5" tall in this hilarious animation drawing - great open-eyed expression and full-body rendering, as he peers around a giant foghorn. He is drawn in graphite and colored pencil on 12 field 5-peghole animation paper. Paper has some minor handling and slight toning along left edge. In Very Good condition.
