    The Mail Pilot Mickey Mouse and Peg Leg Pete Production Drawing (Walt Disney, 1933). Neither rain, nor sleet nor gloom of Peg Leg Pete will deter mail pilot Mickey from his appointed rounds. This David Hand-directed short was released on May 13, 1933. The same storyline was used for the daily Mickey Mouse newspaper comic strip which ran as a serial from 2/27 to 6/10 of that same year. This is considered a classic early Mickey Mouse short and original drawings from it are highly sought after by collectors. This drawing is particularly rare as it features both Mickey and Pete in their planes on a single sheet of paper. In most scenes they were animated separately, but are both on screen together for only a couple of seconds around the 06:19 mark. The 9" x 1" image is exquisitely detailed in graphite with colored pencil on 12 field 2-peghole animation paper numbered 12 in the lower right corner. A fantastic vintage Disney production piece complete with hero and villain all in one. It is floated in a 21" x 18.5" frame under Plexiglas. Minor handling and condition is Very Good.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
