    Fantasia Mickey Mouse as the Sorcerer's Apprentice Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1940). "He was a bright young lad, and very anxious to learn the business. As a matter of fact, he was little bit too bright, because he started practicing some of the boss's best magic tricks before learning how to control them!" These are some of the words spoken by Deems Taylor at the beginning of the "Sorcerer's Apprentice" segment in Fantasia. This is one of the single most amazing stop 16 field 5-peghole animation rough drawings we have seen from this segment. It's drawn with incredible detail in graphite with red, blue and green pencil highlights. Huge image of Mickey measuring 7", with his shadow at 9". The number 37 is written in the bottom right corner. This is the scene where Mickey has watched Sorcerer Yen Sid place the hat down and leave. Mickey sneaks to the stairs to make sure he has left. This may be one of the single best animation drawings of Mickey from his greatest role we have seen. Minor handling. Fine condition.
