DescriptionWalt Disney Studios - Animation Model Sheet for Cannibal King from "Trader Mickey" Original Art (Disney, 1931). Here is a bit of film history that the fine folks at Disney might just as soon "recast." This is the model sheet for the Cannibal King in "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 reluctance to show this 'toon today is that it features some broad caricatures of the cannibal natives that are quite extreme. A couple of poses feature the King wearing a girdle for a crown, and one sketch is of him laughing over a copy of Ballyhoo, a popular parody magazine of the day. There is a Walt Disney Productions stamp on an unobtrusive, blank portion of the page. This piece comes to you matted and in Excellent condition; the image area measures 8.5" x 11.5".
