    Description

    Steamboat Willie Mickey Mouse Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1928). Historic original 12 field 2-peghole animation drawing of a rare full-figure Mickey Mouse from his first widely released theatrical cartoon. This is from the scene where he walks up to the large cow, before he opens the mouth to play the teeth. You can see this around the 6:05 mark. Ub Iwerks (1901-1971) did most of the animation in this short, which was directed by Walt Disney. This film is listed as #13 in Jerry Beck's book The 50 Greatest Cartoons, and was selected for preservation by the US National Film Registry in 1998. Great full-figure image of 5", in graphite on paper, with the number 45 written in the lower right corner, and "43" blue-stamped on the reverse. Very few full-figure Mickey drawings from this film still exist. Minor handling and edge wear, with a tiny tear on the left side in the paper, well away from the image. Very Good overall condition.
