DescriptionTwo-Gun Mickey Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1934).
When Cowgirl Minnie makes a substantial withdrawal from the bank and leaves with a large sack of money, Peg Leg Pete sees her. He gathers his gang of desperados to chase her down, hoping to take the sack of money from her. Cowboy Mickey, who was told by Minnie that she could take care of herself, sees this chase unfolding from his high perch, and rides down to save her. When he gets into a fight with Pete, the outlaw pulls a knife on our hero. We see this depicted in this rare original animation drawing. You will find this dramatic image starting around the 8:23 mark in Walt Disney's 1934 short subject film, Two-Gun Mickey, directed by Ben Sharpsteen and released to theaters on 12/15/34. The drawing was rendered in graphite on 12 field 2-peghole animation paper. Noted on the drawing is; CELL NO. 2 DRWG NO.1 SC 57 - M28 BABBIT. Referring to Art Babbit a renowned Disney Animator responsible for animating the Evil Queen in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs as well as many Walt Disney shorts which include Two-Gun Mickey. This is an actual working production piece with very light paper toning and minor handling. Condition is Very Good.
