    Mickey's Circus Mickey Mouse and Title Animation Drawings Group of 2 (Walt Disney, 1936). "Introducing Captain Donald Duck" says Ringmaster Mickey Mouse in the opening of this great cartoon short. This day at the circus, orphans are admitted free; naturally, havoc ensues. This is a great original 12 field 5-peghole animation drawing of Mickey introducing Captain Donald Duck and his trained seals at the :38 mark. Also in the lot is a proposed animated opening sequence of the title on a floating balloon. VERY RARE! This short was directed by Ben Sharpsteen and was released on 8/1/36. Minor handling and edge wear; Very Good condition.
