    Description

    Mighty Mouse Stock (20th Century Fox, 1945). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Studio head Paul Terry initially rejected Izzy Klein's proposal for "Super Fly," a fly with superhuman powers, but shortly thereafter, he used the idea as the basis for his own character, Mighty Mouse. The character, soon to become one of the most popular cartoon characters ever brought to screen, debuted in the short, The Mouse of Tomorrow, released on October 16, 1942. Other shorts quickly followed, and within a few years, Mighty Mouse had made the leap from the silver screen to the printed page, appearing in several comic books. Later still, he would be a staple of the early television era. The poster offered here is a stock sheet that bears the title of an early Mighty Mouse cartoon, Mighty Mouse Meets Bad Bill Bunion, which was released on November 9, 1945. It shows edge wear in the bottom border, a tear at the top fold line with paper tape on the reverse, edge wear with small tears at the folds, a small chip in the bottom left corner, and some extra vertical creasing, but this is, overall, a very attractive and highly desirable poster, featuring a fabulous image of an iconic cartoon character. Fine+.
