DescriptionThe Worm Turns Mickey Mouse Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1937). Mickey plays a "mad scientist" with his "Courage Builder" formula. Here he is, in his lab coat and gloves, having just discovered his test subject... a fly trapped in a spider's web! Directed by Ben Sharpsteen, this surreal short has Mickey turning underdogs into monsters. This is an original 12 field animation drawing from this short, noted as 513 in the lower right. You can find the cartoon online; see this image at the 1:43 mark. Very Good condition with minor handling wear, and a tiny bit of missing paper in the bottom right, well away from the image.
