DescriptionThe Wayward Canary Mickey Mouse Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1932).
Mickey and Pluto manage to completely wreck Minnie's house, in this Burt Gillett-directed short that hit theaters on 11/12/32. It starts innocently enough, with Mickey's gift to Minnie of a canary in a bird cage; soon, the canary's hatchlings come out and wind up in an "ink bath." Rounding up the last of the baby birds causes the destruction. Here is an original 12 field, 2-peghole animation drawings from the scene where Mickey crashes into Minnie's greenhouse while chasing the last baby bird. It can be seen at the 05:52 mark in the cartoon. The drawing is numbered 26 and shows Mickey crashing into Minnie's greenhouse. Rendered in graphite, image area measures size 9" x 7" including the broken greenhouse pieces. Light age-related paper toning and minor handling wear. Condition is Very Good.
