    Touchdown Mickey Mickey Mouse Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1932). Football quarterback Mickey is experiencing a rough time on the gridiron, and he's about to get an unwanted addition to his uniform, in this rare sequence of four original 12 field 2-peghole animation drawings. Wilfred Jackson directed the short, which capitalized on the nation's craze for college football; it was released on 10/15/32. Here's the setup for this sequence: in the final seconds of a tied game between Mickey's Manglers vs. the Alley Cats, the ball has gotten away and heads for the stand, where it hits a spectator and takes away his false teeth, glasses, and toupée. Beginning at the 5:29 mark, we see Mickey face down in the mud, as the ball knocks him back down, leaving the wig, glasses, and teeth on Mickey's backside, giving him a second "face" at the 5:30 mark. The graphite drawings are numbered 4 (image size 5.5" x 3"); #10 (Mickey's image size 5.5" x 3", adorned ball 1.5" x 1.5"); #19A (overall image size 6.5" x 3.75"); and #24 (7.75" x 2.5", with added yellow pencil highlights). Minor paper toning and handling wear; Very Good condition.
