    Mickey's Garden Animation Drawings Sequence of 5 (Walt Disney, 1935).
    Mickey's garden is being invaded by insects in Walt Disney's 1935 animated short, Mickey's Garden, directed by Wilfred Jackson and released on 7/13/35. In an attempt to stop the invasion and rid his garden of the pesky bugs, Mickey uses insecticide, but accidentally gets dosed by his own bug spray, after which he begins having wild hallucinations. In this rare sequence of five original animation drawings, we see Mickey filling his bug sprayer with the insecticide. These images start around the 2:31 mark. Disney Legend Inductee and one of "Walt's Nine Old Men" Ollie Johnston did the layouts for this short while Walt Disney provided the voice for Mickey Mouse. The images were rendered in graphite with color pencils on 12 field 2-peghole animation paper. Two of the drawings are numbered 160, with both figure sizes measuring 3.5"; the other drawings are numbered 64 (figure size 3.5"), #102 (figure size 3"), and #191 (figure size 4.5"). This is actual working production art with light paper toning, reinforced pegholes, and minor handling wear; overall condition is Very Good.
