Flight of the Bumble Bee Mickey Mouse and Spike the Bee Animation Art Group (Walt Disney, 1940-50s). This is a really unusual group. It features the complete storyboards for an unmade Spike the Bee cartoon featuring Mickey Mouse! While this short was not actually made, several of the gags look similar to the Donald Duck and Spike the Bee ("Buzz Buzz") cartoon "Bee On Guard" from 1951. So they may have been eventually used there. This group showcases just how much work goes into even a project that doesn't get made. Each of the original art drawings were pinned to a cork board in order, then photographed. These four pages are prints of those photos on photographic paper. Each page has approximately 60 images on it. There are 220 images in all. Pages are 17" x 8.5". Stapled together in the top left corner, 2-hole punched in left margin, small piece missing from bottom left corner of first page. There is edge wear and corner wear. Overall in Very Good condition.
