    Building a Building Minnie Mouse Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1933). Construction sites often served as backdrops for animated slapstick - the gag possibilities are endless! "Box lunch? You want a box lunch?" Minnie sings to Mickey as she offers him a catered meal (on the house). Foreman Pete, who has already been pestering her, has stolen Mickey's fish sandwich. Because of his earlier chivalry, Minnie already has her eye on Mickey, and is only too happy to get to know him better. This construction-themed short was actually a remake of one of Disney's earlier efforts, 1928's Sky Scrappers, starring Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. In addition, it was the second Mickey Mouse cartoon to be nominated for an Oscar - losing only to another Disney short, Three Little Pigs. This film was released on January 7, 1933, and was the directorial debut of one of Disney's top animators from the period, David Hand. Future Disney superstars Les Clark, Clyde Geronimi, Dick Lundy, and Ben Sharpsteen all provided animation for the film. A sweet pose of a flirtatious Minnie measures nearly 4.5" tall, and is rendered in graphite on 12 field, 5-peghole animation paper. In Fine condition.
