WALT DISNEY STUDIO
The Nifty Nineties (1941)
original production animation drawing
red, green and black pencil on untrimmed animation sheet, image size: 2.75" x 2.25"
This original final animation drawing of Mickey Mouse and Minnie was created by a Disney Studio animator in production of the animated cartoon, and a cel painting was made directly from it. Riley Thompson directed this charming cartoon, and this drawing is from a scene in the couple's drive through the country as Mickey's automobile struggles to crest a hill, then races down to a humorous encounter with a cow. The animator wrote the studio designation "31" at lower right to indicate this original's place in the scene.
