    The Karnival Kid Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1929). "Hot dogs! Hot dogs" Mickey Mouse has his first spoken words manning a hot dog stand in the 1929 theatrical short The Karnival Kid, directed by Walt Disney and animated by Ub Iwerks. Composer Carl Stalling actually provided the voice for the short before Walt Disney became Mickey's primary voice actor. Here is a wonderful original animation drawing believed to be the kinetic crowd shot at the beginning off The Karnival Kid, featuring a great image of background characters in a conga line. The image measures 3.75" x 1.75" on the 12 field 2-peghole animation paper and the number 48 is noted in the lower right corner. The paper itself shows minor handling and edge wear with some light tearing and folding in the corners and edges. The paper shows toning in places due to age, and the condition of the artwork is Very Good.
