DescriptionDisney Studios - Original Background Layout for Mickey Mouse Short Film (undated). Mickey Mouse's short cartoons became so popular that people would first ask ticket takers if they were "running a Mickey" before they would purchase admission. Soon, theaters were displaying posters that read "Mickey Mouse playing today!" It was not uncommon for patrons to sit through a feature twice to see him again. The '30s was Mickey Mouse's Golden Age - 87 cartoon shorts starring the multi-talented mouse were produced by Walt Disney during that decade. He played everything from fireman to giant killer, cowboy to inventor, detective to plumber. Technically and artistically Mickey Mouse cartoons were far superior to other contemporary cartoons and gave life to an entire family of animated characters: Minnie Mouse, Clarabelle Cow, Horace Horsecollar, Goofy, Pluto, Donald Duck, Peg-Leg Pete, and many others. This background layout sketch for an unidentified Mickey Mouse short cartoon measures 9.5" x 12", and is drawn in graphite and colored pencil. The opposite side has an interesting sketch of Mickey and Minnie Mouse, obviously used. Some aging, but overall in great condition.
