    Disney Studios - Original Animation Art Model Sheet for Cannibal King from Trader Mickey (Disney, 1931). What we have here is a bit of history that the fine folks at Disney would just as soon you never saw and something they would just as soon forget. This is the model sheet for the Cannibal King from "Trader Mickey" from 1931. This short was Disney's take-off on the movie "Trader Horn" released the year prior. The reason for Disney's refusal to show this 'toon any longer is that it features some extremely stereotypical natives that are quite harsh, even for Disney. A couple of poses feature the King wearing a girdle for a crown and one sketch of him laughing over a copy of Ballyhoo, a popular parody magazine of the day. This one will be a rare treat for any animation enthusiast or the seeker of Black Americana. There is a Walt Disney Productions stamp on an unobtrusive, blank portion of the page. This piece comes to you matted and the image area measures 8.5" x 11.5".
