Description

(Walt Disney Studios, 1933) Fantastic set of four original production drawings of Mickey Mouse from Mickey's Mellerdrammer, which features a sequence of Mickey picking up and placing a wig on his head as he prepares for his production of Uncle Tom's Cabin. Accomplished in graphite and colored pencil on untrimmed 12 x 9.5 sheets of animation paper, with each accordingly marked in the lower right, "127," "134," "142," and "156." Character images range in size from 3.25 x 4.75 to 7 x 3.5. In overall fine condition. Mickey's Mellerdrammer is today considered controversial as it is essentially a take-off on a minstrel show, with Mickey—moments after putting on his wig—applying blackface with an exploding firecracker.
