DescriptionMickey's Gala Premier Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and Pluto Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1933). This short was one of the first to introduce parodies of stars from of the Golden Age of Hollywood. The cartoon takes place at Grauman's Chinese Theater. The stars all come out to see a new Mickey Mouse short, and in the audience with them is Mickey and Minnie with Pluto. This is an outstanding original 12 field 2-peghole animation drawing of the three right after they come out of their limo. Mickey is frowning as Pluto is eyeing a palm tree! This image can be seen around the 2:45 mark. Laurel and Hardy, Charlie Chaplin, Clark Gable, Marlene Dietrich, and many other film personalities appear in this short, which was directed by Burt Gillett and released on 7/1/33. Great three-character drawing, with nice graphite images measuring 3". Minor handling and edge wear; tiny tear in bottom left corner, nowhere near image. Fine condition.
