    Fantasia Mickey Mouse as the Sorcerer Apprentice Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1940). Mickey Mouse achieved his greatest role as the "Sorcerer Apprentice" in the animated feature film Fantasia. This lot may be one of the best pure pieces of artwork that showcases his role in this film. This is a rare MATCHED PAIR of animation drawings. They show Mickey feverishly trying to bail water out of the window in a lost cause. Coming down the stairs nearby is a legion of brooms carrying two buckets of water each. The flooding is nonstop. This is an outstanding 16 field, 5-peghole animation drawing of Mickey, half underwater, trying to bail out the water. Great large image of him with his Sorcerer's hat on! Drawing is stamped 2004/7/64 with 44 written on bottom right. Graphite with green and red pencil highlights. With this drawing is the exact matching effects drawing. The effects drawing is by Ugo D'Orsi. It has the same stamped numbers and has C-44 in bottom right corner. Mickey, in all blue, is a great water effects drawing done in graphite, red and green pencil. You can see this exact scene around the 6:14 mark into the segment. Rare to find the exact animation drawing with its matched effects drawing. Minor handling and edge wear. Overall condition is Very Good.
