    Pluto Original Storyboard (Walt Disney, c. 1940s).
    Pluto is Mickey Mouse's pet dog and closest companion. He first appeared as a nameless bloodhound in 1930s The Chain Gang. Pluto is very unique for a character in Mickey's world, in that he does not ascribe to any human attributes or form beyond showing a broad range of facial expressions. In this lot we have an exceptional storyboard frame depicting the lovable mutt. Storyboards are used as a graphic representation of how the film will unfold, shot by shot. It's made up of a number of squares with illustrations or pictures representing each shot, and may have notes about what's going on in the scene or what's being said in the script during that shot. This frame features Pluto in his classic protectionist pose. The illustration is mixed media on 12 field 5-peghole animation paper. The artwork shows age-related toning and has holes in the top where it was pinned to a story wall. The holes have been torn away. Otherwise, the piece is in Fair to Good condition.
