    Mickey's Mellerdrammer Background Layout Drawings Group of 2 (Walt Disney, 1933). This Wilfred Jackson-directed short starred Mickey and Minnie Mouse, along with Goofy, Horace Horsecollar, and Clarabelle Cow in a barnyard production of the now politically-incorrect stage play, "Uncle Tom's Cabin." This is a pair of detailed background layout drawings from the backstage area of the ongoing play. The first is where Minnie Mouse is making popcorn and blowing it out on stage as a snow effect. It showcases Act 2 Scene 3, and can be seen at the 5:21 mark into the short. The second detailed layout drawing is when Mickey grabs the curtain rope by the fire bucket as dogs chase a cat on top of Clarabelle's head, at the 7:35 mark. Both are on 12 field 2-peghole animation paper. This is some of the most detailed background layout artwork ever produced by the studio! Graphite with blue pencil character outlines. Minor handling and edge wear. Good condition.
