    Description

    Mickey's Rival Minnie and Mortimer Production Drawing by Les Clark (Walt Disney, 1936). An outstanding and rare layout drawing from the cartoon directed by Wilfred Johnson and animated by Les Clark, one of Disney's celebrated Nine Old Men, and the only one of the nine to work on Mickey from the beginning with Ub Iwerks. Minnie Mouse is seen here with the title character, Mortimer; it's interesting to note that this name was once considered for Mickey. Graphite and red pencil on a 12-field 5-peghole sheet of animation paper; Minnie is approximately 3.5", while Mortimer stands 5" with his hat tipped in the air. It's one of the only Minnie and Mortimer drawings we've see to date, and was originally sold as part of the Les Clark Estate in the 1990s. Fine condition.
