Mickey Mouse, Goofy, Donald Duck, Pete
MEDIUM: Original Production Drawing Set
IMAGE SIZE: 12" x 9.5"
PRODUCTION: Mickey's Service Station, 1935
ABOUT THE IMAGE: This 1935 short, directed by Ben Sharpsteen (1895 - 1980), was released on 3/16/1935. It was the first to feature Mickey, Donald, and Goofy as a team and followed the three as they - literally - worked for their lives to fix Pete's car. This pair of wonderful 12 field 2-peghole vintage animation drawings capture the before and after of their hard work, one showing the trio rush to fix the car and the other Pete mid-explosion. They are rendered in graphite with color pencil and look to be created for around 1:46 and 7:26. It looks like this animated classic still has some surprises because neither made it into the final film, making them a truly rare find. They are noted as 35B and 167.
ABOUT THE MEDIUM: Original production drawings are one-of-a-kind pieces of art that were used in the creation of an animated film or television show. Each has been hand-drawn by studio artists!
