Mickey’s Service Station Sketches

-After watching all the earnest animated shorts entered into the Oscar competition, I decided to treat myself by watching some of my favorite Mickey shorts. I particularly like a lot of the B&W films of the early period.

Mickey’s Service Station is featured on Mark Sonntag ‘s TagToonz blog with some interesting material, so I started with that one.

It’s way up there in my Pantheon of great shorts. The DVD features a rough animatic of story sketches from the vault. So I’ve pulled some frame grabs and am posting them here. There are some beautiful drawings here.

    My 3 1/2 year old son Hugo loves this one. He’s on a B&W Mickey Mouse run with no end in site. He’ll love looking at these Sketches. Thanks for posting Michael.

    I stole your idea and continued with Two-Gun Mickey, The Dognapper and The Playful Pluto.They are all from the same year.

    Teodor, where are you continuing this? Are you pulling art from the DVDs? Are you making frame grabs somewhere? I’d like to see them.
    Or are you just studying these great old masterpieces? I can’t get enough of them.

    I stole your ‘treat myself’.
    In emergency, these cartoons I found on you tube.

    I have only Volume 2 of b/w mickey mouse on DVD.
    I will make grabs and send them to you.

    Hi Teodor, I have both volumes of the B&W Mickey. Thanks for offering to make grabs. I love those shorts and watch them frequently. It’s probably one of my most viewed DVDs.
