Description


A seldom-seen ‘Mousecar’ award presented to Disney employee Bernie Cobb. Walt Disney felt that since he was the only one of the many company employees singled out for Academy Awards and other accolades, he created an in-house award to recognize the important contributions of his key personnel who worked on projects, participated in community service, or for long-term employment. The first went to his brother Roy Disney. Walt called the initial version the ‘Mousecar Award’ (a play on the Academy's "Oscar"), with the first being presented in 1940. The award features a six-inch tall, solidly cast metal humble-looking Mickey statue with an enamel coating that gives the impression of an aged bronze patina, all mounted upon a round Academy-standard Bakelite base that is 2.5″ tall. This Mousecar's shiny brass plaque reads, “With Thanks and Best Wishes to Bernie Cobb, Walt Disney 1948.” In fine condition, with a few missing paint flecks. Company awards such as this are quite rare and seldom come to auction, and this example represents possibly the oldest known ‘Mousecar’ available. RR Auction COA.
