DescriptionDognappers Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck Animation Drawings Sequence of 4 (Walt Disney, 1934). Offered here is a sequence of four original animation drawings of Mickey Mouse and the early long-billed version of Donald Duck from the very first time the two were teamed up. It is also only the third theatrical appearance of Donald. This exciting, fast-paced short was directed by David Hand and released on 11/17/34. In it Mickey and Donald are motorcycle cops out to nab Dognapper - Peg Leg Pete. The sequence of drawings begins at around the 1:14 mark as they set off in hot pursuit. Each drawing is rendered in graphite on 12 field 2-peghole paper and the images measure 4.5" tall on average. The pages are numbered 135, 168, 218, 245 respectively in the lower right corner. These are fantastic original renderings from Mickey and Donald's first co-starring role making them truly historic pieces. The paper shows light handling and tanning. Condition is Very Good.
