    Description

    Mickey's Circus Background Layout Drawings Group of 3 (Walt Disney, 1936). Ben Sharpsteen directed this short that had Mickey Mouse as the Circus Ring Master and Donald Duck as a trainer of some fussy seals. They are performing for a group of rowdy orphans. This short was released on 8/1/36. Here is a series of three background layout drawings. One showcases the inside of the circus tent, a second one is of the stands the orphans sit on, and a third is of the rigging that holds up the circus tent. Amazing detail in these graphite drawings, done on 12 field 5-peghole animation paper. One of the layouts has the studio notes sheet attached. It reads, "Cu. Rear table. Baby seal plays Duck slaps at him." The quality of these background layout drawings showcases the true "Art of Disney." Minor handling, edge wear, slight border tears. Overall Good condition.
