    Fantasia "Sorcerer's Apprentice" Mickey Mouse Rough 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!" says Deems Taylor at the beginning of the "Sorcerer's Apprentice" segment in Fantasia. This is an amazing 16 field, 5-peghole animation rough drawing believed to be from the hand of Fred Moore. It's a rough drawing with Mickey in graphite and his shadow in red pencil. Huge image of Mickey measuring 8" x 6.5", with his shadow at 9". The number 51 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. The piece is floated in a 23" x 19" frame with a 16" x 13" mat opening. Frame sold as-is. Minor edge wear from normal production handling. Fine condition.
