    Mickey's Garden Animation Drawings Sequence of 8 (Walt Disney, 1935).
    In this Wilfred Jackson-directed 1935 animated short, Mickey tries to rid his garden from an invasion of insects by using a pesticide. Naturally, he gets accidentally dosed by his own bug spray, after which he begins having wild hallucinations. During this psychedelic event, Mickey has an encounter with a giant stag beetle, which is depicted in this sequence of eight original animation drawings. You can see these images starting around the 5:18 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 drawings were rendered in graphite with colored pencil on 12 field 2-peghole animation paper. Pages featuring Mickey are numbered 1B (image size 2.75" x 2.75"); #33 (image 5.5" x 2.25"); #37 (Mickey's figure size 3.25"); and #57 (image 6" x 2.25"). The beetle's pages are numbered 84 (image 5.75" x 6"); #89 (image 8.5" x 5.5"); #146 (5.25" x 5", with an extra set of reinforced pegholes); and #167 (image 8" x 6.25", with Mickey's hand visible in faint red pencil). This is a rare set of actual working production art and thus will show normal usage; there is some paper toning and handling/edge wear, with most of the pegholes reinforced; overall condition is Very Good.
