    Steamboat Willie Mickey Mouse Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1928). Historic Ub Iwerks original 12 field 2-peghole animation drawing of Mickey Mouse in his first widely released role from Steamboat Willie. This short was directed by Walt Disney and premiered at the Colony Theater In New York on November 18, 1928. This great drawing is from the scene of Mickey Mouse playing the teeth of a large cow, about the 6:27 mark into the short. The number 131 is written on the lower right, with a "127" blue stamp on reverse. Graphite on paper. Mickey is approximately 5". One of the best happy facial expressions from this scene we have seen! Slight staining on paper, away from image. Minor handling and edge wear, slight crease in center; otherwise, Very Good condition. This really is a "It All Started With a Mouse" piece of studio history!
