    Mickey's Circus Background Layout Drawing (Walt Disney, 1936). This short starred Mickey Mouse along with Captain Donald Duck and his performing Sea Lions. This is an outstanding layout drawing for the background that you see at about the 7:35 mark, when the Orphans push the water tank into view to save Mickey and Donald falling from the high wire. The lead sheet is attached to this layout drawing. It says this is Scene 68. The incredibly detailed art area is 10" x 8". Ben Sharpsteen directed this short with animation done by Milt Kahl, Frank Thomas, and Shamus Culhane. Minor handling and edge wear; tape marks in border. Very Good condition.
