    The Cactus Kid Mickey Mouse Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1930). Honky-tonk pianist Mickey tickles the ivories with an extra-long arm, in this original 12 field 2-peghole animation drawing. The Cactus Kid was the eighteenth Mickey Mouse short, and the third to be released in 1930. It was the final short to be animated by Ub Iwerks, and last to be directed by Walt Disney (although he continued to voice Mickey); it was also the first to feature Marcellite Garner as the voice of Minnie Mouse and first with Pinto Colvig as the voice of Pete, as well as the first to show Pete with a peg-leg. This image of Mickey at the piano can be seen in online viewings at the 2:37 mark. The drawing is in graphite with red pencil highlights, and an overall image size of 9" x 6.75"; it's noted as 85 in the lower right corner. A "SHOT" stamp is in the upper right corner. Minor handling wear. Very Good condition.
