    Plane Crazy Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse Animation Drawing Group of 2 with Limited Edition Cel (Walt Disney, 1928-29/2008). The Mickey Mouse short Plane Crazy was first shown as a silent film to a test audience on May 5, 1929, technically making it the first-ever Mickey Mouse cartoon. It was co-directed by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks (who reportedly worked six straight weeks on this film, with the help of Hugh Harmon and Randolph Ising). Sound was added later and the film was released to the general public on March 17, 1929 as the fourth short following the release of Steamboat Willie. This lot is a sheer piece of Disney History. Included are two original hand-drawn 12 field 2-peghole animation drawings from Plane Crazy. One features Mickey and Minnie as they try to stay in the plane (with a blue stamp numbered 207 in the upper right corner); the other is of the swerving plane they are trying to fly, which can be seen at the 4:10 mark into the short. Mickey and Minnie together are 4" while the great drawing of the plane is 7". Both pieces are housed in a double aperture mat, with openings measuring approximately 11" x 8". The drawings are framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 20" x 26". But that's not all, folks! Also included is a Disney Ink and Paint Studio hand-painted One of One limited edition cel of Minnie and Mickey from this same scene, placed over a print image of the plane. The special cel is matted (with an opening of 11" x 9") and framed with Plexiglas; it includes a Disney cel, and a Disney COA attached to the back of the frame. What a historic lot!
