Never-Before-Seen Mickey Mouse Animation Sketches By Walt Disney, Now Animated
I don’t know how many actual frames of animation Walt Disney drew himself but it won’t be anything like the the number created by Ub Iwerks, say, or any of the nine old men.
But according to an official Disney blog, the following ‘sketches’ are by Walt himself. They were used in the production of the 1933 short, Mickey’s Gala Premier.
And now, here’s a gif of them and a handful more, animated.
The whole toon is on YouTube, in pretty poor quality. These frames are from around the 2 minutes and 26 seconds mark. If you’ve never seen it, you may be surprised at how star studded it is.
