DescriptionMickey's Good Deed Mickey Mouse and Pluto Animation Drawings Group of 3 (Walt Disney, 1932). Mickey and Pluto do a little busking in the snow, in this Christmas-themed short directed by Burt Gillett. The cartoon was released on 12/17/32, at the height of the Great Depression. The story has street performer Mickey (who had just lost his cello when a horse-drawn sleigh runs over it) selling Pluto, not for himself, but to buy toys and food for a family of poor cats -- father Pete is in prison, you see. Here's a sweet sequence of three original 12 field 2-peghole animation drawings of Mickey with his cello, from the beginning of the cartoon. The drawings are numbered 10 and 18 (both seen at the 1:00 mark) and 68 (seen at the 1:04 mark). The art is in graphite with green and red pencil; Mickey's figure sizes are 3.5", 2", and 2.5". Light toning and minor handling wear. Overall condition is Very Good.
