DescriptionTrader Mickey Native Chief Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1932). Back in the days before Political Correctness, racial stereotypes were quite common in animated cartoons. Here's an original 12 field 2-peghole animation drawing of a wildly-caricatured African native chief, from the Mickey Mouse short directed by Dave Hand, released to theaters on 8/20/32. The chief is shown merrily laughing at Mickey's copy of Ballyhoo, an actual humor magazine originally published from 1931 until 1939. The art is in graphite, with an image measuring about 4.75"; it's noted with the number 66 in the upper right corner. Minor handling and edge wear; Fine condition
