    Description

    Thru the Mirror Mickey Mouse Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1936).
    In this Mickey Mouse cartoon short, Thru the Mirror, Mickey has a "Through the Looking Glass" type dream that he travels through his mirror and enters a topsy-turvy world where everything is alive. This short subject film was directed by David Hand, who would go on to be the supervising director on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Thru the Mirror was released on 5/30/36. The title is written as Thru the Mirror on the title card, but the alternative spelling Through the Mirror is used on the poster for the film. The drawing we have in this lot is interesting in that it has the animator's notations on the piece indicating; "take this sc. same as the others turn it over and over" making this a superb piece for any animation collection. You will see this image around the 7:31 mark in the short. This one-of-a-kind piece was hand-drawn using graphite and red pencil on 12 field 5-peghole animation paper. The image area measures approximately 4" x 4". The piece has slight toning of the paper due to aging; otherwise, the artwork is in Very Good condition.
