DescriptionPlane Crazy Mickey Mouse Animation Drawing by Ub Iwerks (Walt Disney, 1928).
The Mickey Mouse short Plane Crazy was first shown as a silent film to a test audience on 5/15/28, making it technically the first-ever Mickey Mouse cartoon. The short 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 Rudolph Ising). Sound was added and the film was released to the general public on 3/17/29 as the fourth Mickey Mouse short after Steamboat Willie. This is a rare animation drawing of Mickey and Minnie in the plane, from the hand of Ub Iwerks. You will find this image around the 4:36 mark. The plane is done in graphite and is about 2" in a frame of 13.5" x 15.5" under Plexiglas with a mat opening of 4.75" x 6.25". Frame sold as-is. A piece of serious Disney Studio history! Fine condition.
