Thru the Mirror is a great Mickey Mouse short that was a parody of sorts of Alice in Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass. David Hand directed this short, which was released on 5/30/36. There is some very innovative animation in this film. Carl Barks, who began at the studio as an in-betweener, was an uncredited storyboard/gag writer on this short. In honor of his work on this cartoon, The “Mickey Thru the Mirror” Bronze statue was unveiled at the Orlando-based Disneyana convention in September, 1995. This is the wonderful and innovative Bronze that has Mickey dancing on a piece of film-strip, in honor of him dancing on the globe in the short. The delicate detail is striking. The Bronze is 42 cm tall on a marble base with a large 25 cm diameter. The edition on this bronze is only 200, and this is #58. The base is signed in gold pen by Carl Barks (1901-2000) and artist Paul Vought.
