DescriptionSociety Dog Show Mickey Mouse Animation Drawings Sequence of 3 (Walt Disney, 1939). Bill Roberts directed this Mickey and Pluto cartoon, one of our personal favorites; it was first released on 2/3/39. Mickey Mouse is featured in this original sequence of three 12 field 5-peghole animation drawings from the beginning of the short. This is as Mickey and Pluto arrive, not in a limousine like most of the participants, but in a wooden crate with wheels and a "sidecar" for Pluto. Watching this on YouTube, the sequence begins at the :56 mark. The drawings are in graphite over red or yellow penciled underdrawings and blue pencil shadow outlines. Here, Mickey is grabbing at Pluto's collar, with the numbers 128, 131, and 132 written in the lower right corners. Mickey's figure size ranges from 3.75" to 4.25". The first drawing has a small timing chart, and all three have a Disney Studio Art Props stamp in the upper right and blue numbers stamped on the reverse. Two of the drawings have a reinforced peghole, and there is a small ink stain on the second piece, well away from the image. Condition ranges from Good to Very Good, with minor handling.
