    Ye Olden Days Pan Background Layout Drawing (Walt Disney, 1933).
    Walt Disney's 1933 short, Ye Olden Days is set in Europe during the Middle Ages. Mickey Mouse, the wandering minstrel, rides in on his donkey whilst strumming on his lute and singing a song. He then arrives at a castle and witnesses the king of Palapazoo declare that his daughter, Princess Minnie, shall marry the prince of Poopapadoo, played by Dippy Dawg. Dippy Dawg would later be re-imagined as a younger character we all know as Goofy. Ye Olden Days was release on 8/8/33 and featured Walt Disney as the voice of Mickey along with Pinto Colvig providing the voice for Dippy Dawg. From this classic short film we have an incredible panoramic background layout drawing which can be seen at the 6:42 mark. The piece measures a whopping 35" x 9" with an image area of 19" x 7.5". The drawing is noted as scene 56 and attributed to animator Ben Leonard. The drawing was rendered in graphite and colored pencil on paper and is loaded with the animator's notes to the background department. The detail in this layout drawing along with all the notations make this a wonderful piece for the discerning collector. The artwork has several folds and creases in the image area, normal handling, edge wear and toning due to the age of the artwork; otherwise, Good condition.
