    Lonesome Ghosts Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1937). Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and Goofy star in this fan-favorite short directed by Burt Gillett, featuring Mickey running a Ghostbusters-type business. The ghosts themselves call up the Ghost Exterminators to kill their boredom and have some laughs. Some of the animation in this short was done by Art Babbitt, Ed Love, and Milt Kahl. This is a rare original storyboard of the ghosts running up the stairs and yelling "Ghosts!" after seeing Mickey, Donald, and Goofy covered in molasses in the basement and thinking they were actually phantoms. Artwork from this short is difficult to find. This is a two-storyboard panel on 11" x 5" paper. In graphite with nice red and blue pencil highlights. A great image in Fine condition.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
