    Description

    Tugboat Mickey (RKO, 1940). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy spar with Murphy's Law while trying to get their tugboat underway and affect a rescue at sea. Mickey tangles with a pesky pelican while Donald fusses with the machinery, and Goofy tries to get the boiler stoked with coal. What else could go wrong? This is only the second time Heritage has offered this poster, which features a delightfully playful image of Mickey aboard ship. Restoration has addressed pinholes in the corners, a tear with a small chip in the left border, a minor chip in the lower border, and a scuff in the "W" of Walt. Touchup has been applied to the folds. These early Mickey one sheets have become increasingly difficult to find and this gorgeous example is one of the best! Very Fine- on Linen.
