    Description

    Mickey's Circus Mickey Mouse Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1936).
    "Introducing Captain Donald Duck - and his performing sea lions!" And with these fateful words, the debacle begins. This Mickey Mouse cartoon was released on 8/8/36. Ben Sharpsteen directs - and among those who worked on the short were Disney titans Milt Kahl, Frank Thomas, and Shamus Culhane. In this short, Mickey plays a circus ringmaster who is holding a special free performance for the local orphanage. However, Donald's unruly sea lion family does not know how to take orders - the chaos they bring almost ends in destroying the entire circus. The above dialogue can be overheard during the exact shot from which this drawing is taken, near the start of the film at the 0:38 mark. Ringmaster Mickey is standing on a small platform and giving "Captain Donald" a very spirited introduction. Rendered in graphite on 12 field 5-peghole animation paper, Mickey stands 5" tall. Very slight handling, light toning. Very Good condition.
