    Description

    Society Dog Show Pluto Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1939). This knockout short features one of the most thrilling climactic scenes up to that point in cartoon history. A (formerly-scorned) Pluto must save his future girlfriend, Fifi "the Peke", from a burning building and ends up doing high-wire acrobatics - on roller skates, no less - before all is said and done. It was also the last appearance of the classic "pie-eyed" Mickey; starting with his next short, "Mickey's Surprise Party", both Mickey and Minnie would receive their current, updated look, created by Fred Moore. Released to theaters on February 3, 1939, this short was directed by Bill Roberts, and featured the work of animators Norm Ferguson, Shamus Culhane, and John Lounsbery. The haughty judge is scandalized that such an uncouth pair would dare set foot in their exclusive show; Pluto attempts to apologize for his exuberant behavior by covering the stuffy fellow in sloppy kisses! This drawing can be seen at the 4:26 point in the film. The two are rendered in graphite and colored pencil. Very large image area measures 10" x 6.5". Minor creasing in upper left corner. Drawing is in Very Good condition.
