Tugboat Mickey (1940)|
Key master set-up of Goofy.
Goofy is having his own troubles trying to get the coal into the seemingly bewitched stove. In this gorgeous master set-up we see him trying (one more time) to outsmart the maniacal machine.
This scene appears at 4:55 in the film.
Cel has become slightly wavy which is common for vintage animation cels. The character cel is affixed to the background with clear tape along the upper edge and there is a clear overlay cel between the background and character cel. There is a 0.75" tear and cel loss of 0.5" x 0.5" to the upper left corner which can be easily matted out. There is evidence of a staple hole in the cels by each upper corner which can be easily matted out. There are two miniscule specks of paint loss on the character; in the left arm by the shoulders with very slight lifting and in the left leg by the ankle. There is some slight cracking with lifting in the character’s hat and slight lifting in the eyes, nose and right leg. There is evidence of staple holes and pin holes by the upper corners and within the margins of the background which can be easily matted out. As pinning up work for evaluation was often part of the creative process, this is fairly common for this type of work. There is evidence of surface paper loss, darkened tape residue, and paint bleeding in the background’s margins which can be easily matted out.
The size of this piece is 12 Field (11"x13") and the size of the image is 5.5" h x 4.5" w.
