    Description

    Plane Crazy Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1928-29). The Mickey Mouse short Plane Crazy was first shown as a silent film to a test audience on May 15, 1928, making it technically the first-ever Mickey Mouse cartoon release. It was co-directed by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks (1901-1971). Ub reportedly worked six straight weeks on this short, with help from Hugh Harmon and Rudy Ising. Sound was later added to this short and it was formally released to the general public on March 17, 1929, as the fourth Mickey Mouse theatrical short. This is a rare 12 field 2-peghole animation drawing of Mickey and Minnie in the airplane. Minnie is in the plane which is running on the ground in wild abandon. Mickey finally jumps in to save her, and the plane takes off, spiraling into the sky. You can see this at around the 4:02 mark. Graphite on paper, with the number 189 written in along the bottom right corner. A blue-stamped "27" is on the reverse. This Ub Iwerks original is a true piece of animation history! Minor handling wear and some prior framing tape on the top border. Very Good condition.
