Description

    Steamboat Willie Mickey Mouse Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1928). Historic original 12 field 2-peghole animation drawing of Mickey Mouse pulling on the cow's tongue while he plays her teeth, from the first widely released debut short, Steamboat Willie. Drawn by Ub Iwerks and directed by Walt Disney, this theatrical short premiered on November 18, 1928 at New York City's Colony Theater. This film was listed as #13 in Jerry Beck's book The 50 Greatest Cartoons and was also selected for preservation by the US National Film Registry in 1998. This is from the scene on the boat set to the tune of "Turkey in the Straw." You can see this image around the 6:30 mark in to the short. The number 391 in bottom right corner, with 63 circled; the blue stamped number on the reverse is 387. Great smile on Mickey's face, with a nice large overall image of 4" x 5". Minor handling and edge wear. Some white framing tape along the top border. Fine condition.
