    Description

    Pluto's Sweater Minnie Mouse and Pluto Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1949). Back in the days before boys could wear pink, Minnie had the best intentions when she knitted this unwanted gift for Pluto. One winter's day, to his horror, Pluto receives an atrocious bright pink sweater - and, despite his reluctance - is compelled to wear it in public. The sweater is so tacky, that even Figaro the kitten (yes, that Figaro!) mocks him. After being ridiculed by a group of his canine friends, Pluto falls into a pond, and - the sweater shrinks considerably. Initially crestfallen, Minnie soon realizes that the sweater is now just the right size for a certain little kitten... Released on April 29, 1949, this post-war short was in production for more than a year - and eventually ended up being turned into a story for a Disney Christmas-themed comic book seasonal. Former animator Charles A. Nichols directs. This is an enormous drawing, which nearly spans the width of the frame, with an approximate image area of 10" x 7.5". It can be seen at 5m40s into the film, as Minnie struggles to pull the shrunken sweater off of poor Pluto's head. Pluto and Minnie are both rendered in graphite on 12 field, 5-peghole animation paper. With minor handling/creasing, the drawing is in Very Good condition.
