    Oswald the Lucky Rabbit (Universal, 1934). One Sheet (27.5" X 41").
    It's fair to say that without Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, there would be no Mickey Mouse and no Walt Disney Company. In 1927, a young Walt Disney created his newest character for Universal Studios: Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. The character gained rapid popularity over the next two years, rivaling such audience favorites as Felix the Cat and Koko the Clown. Budget disputes between Disney and Universal split the animator from the studio, with copyright laws forcing him to leave behind his famous bunny. This led Disney to create several new characters, one of which became Mickey Mouse, and of course, the rest is history. This extremely rare stock one sheet from the earliest years of animation would make a fabulous addition to any collection. Professional restoration has addressed pinholes in the corners, very minor chips in the bottom border, tape stains in the borders and folds, and has applied touchup to the folds. The poster still shows a small nick in the bottom left corner, rounded corners, faint writing bleedthrough, and some color fading. Fine on Linen.
