DescriptionSociety Dog Show Pluto Mickey Mouse and Doorman Animation Drawings Sequence of 5 (Walt Disney, 1939). Society Dog Show was the cartoon that really made a hero of Pluto. Here are five original 12 field 5-peghole drawings from this fan-favorite short, which was directed by Bill Roberts and released to theaters on 2/3/39. In the first, noted as number 60 in the lower right corner, Mickey and Pluto are just arriving in Mickey's foot-powered wooden crate "car." This is seen on YouTube viewings at the :50 mark. The art is nicely detailed, drawn in graphite with red pencil highlights for an overall image size of 4.75" x 3.75". Next up is a sequence of three drawings of Mickey walking up to the building, sporty straw hat on his head and suitcase in hand. It begins at the :59 mark, with drawings marked 176, 183A, and 189A. Art is in a combination of graphite, with red, blue, and green pencils. Mickey's figure size averages 4". Finally, we see the none-too-pleased doorman, as seen at the :56 mark, in graphite and color pencils with a figure size of 5.75". The first drawing has repunched/reinforced pegholes; the remaining four have an Art Props stamp in the upper right, and all five have blue numbers stamped on the backside. There is minor handling and edge wear, but the overall condition is Very Good.
