    Description

    Society Dog Show Mickey Mouse and Pluto Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1939). "'Trick dogs?' Hey - you're a trick dog...'Pluto, the Skating Marvel!'" Mickey will try anything to get Pluto into the ritzy dog show - including, improvising a pair of roller skates to strap on his hapless canine friend. After being shown the door, Pluto ends up saving the day. A clumsy photographer starts a fire and, in a thrilling climax featuring some dynamite animation, Pluto makes a harrowing rescue - saving his crush, Fifi the Peke. Many Disney greats worked on this short, including Shamus Culhane, Fred Moore, John Lounsbery, and Norm Ferguson, and it certainly shows in the results! Bill Roberts directs. Released on February 3rd, 1939, this short was the last to feature Mickey's pie-eyed design; for his next outing, Mickey's Surprise Party, he would receive an updated look, now familiar to legions of moviegoers. This drawing can be seen at the turning point in the film - just before Pluto puts aside concerns for personal safety and braves the flames to save his lady love. It occurs at the 6:22 mark. Both Mickey and Pluto are seen in full-body renderings, and are drawn in graphite and colored pencil on 12 field 5-peghole animation paper. Slight creasing throughout and a minor smudge near top left corner. In Very Good condition.
