    Ub Iwerks Steamboat Willie Mickey Mouse Production Drawing (Walt Disney, 1928). Historic 12 field, 2-peghole animation drawing by Ub Iwerks. This is from the first theatrical short viewed en masse, by the public, that launched the career of one Mickey Mouse. Walt Disney directed this short himself. It premiered on November 18th, 1928, at the Colony Theater in New York. This great drawing is from the scene where Mickey is playing the teeth of a hippo as a musical instrument. Mickey is a full 5" tall. Beautifully framed with a linen mat. The original Letter of Authenticity from "Great American Ink" is on the back of the frame. The frame opening is approximately 11" x 8", with the number "371" written on the bottom right corner. Fine condition.
