"Mickey's Delayed Date" (1947) - Pencil Background

Here's a nice pencil background from "Mickey's Delayed Date" (1947). At first, I thought the lettering on the signs was just the standard "geek" lettering done to show where printing would appear but on closer inspection I figured out that some of the words were real words written backwards!

Pencil Background With Backward Wording

Here's an image from the "Encyclopedia of Walt Disney Animated Art" showing the scene with Mickey and Pluto.

Here's another image of the same background from the Disney web site showing Minnie.

----- DATABASE NOTES ------

From “Mickey’s Delayed Date” (1947). "Hard Times" is the sign in front of the theater. "SC 63" "Hard Times Costume Party Tonite!" Sign: "Next Week Orsayday and His Orchestra" The sign reads in part (backwards): Nite Tues Prizes Fun ???" [Unframed Item: 12"W x 10"H] Acquired 1998. SeqID-0238 Updated: 8/3/2005

Reference: Image from “Encyclopedia of WD Animated Art” pg 42 has scene from film. Some minor differences between the pencil background and what appeared in the film. Also can be seen on the Disney web site with Minnie standing in front of the sign.
