    Description

    Society Dog Show Pluto and Fifi Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1939). Mickey will try anything to get Pluto into this 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 adorable drawing shows a smitten Pluto and a very flirtations Fifi, engaged in a playful game of chase. Fifi is peeking out from behind her tasseled pillow. The mutual attraction felt by both characters - and the fun they're both having - is evident in this masterful animation drawing, seen at the 3:15 point in the film. Image area spans roughly 8" x 3.5". Characters are rendered in graphite and colored pencil on 12 field 5-peghole animation paper. In Fine condition.
