"See You All on Monday..."

John Lounsbery animated the "Friday Mickey segments" for The Mickey Mouse Club. He has a terrific handle on the character, who wears  a very involved Cowboy outfit with lots of detail.
You can tell that  Lounsbery enjoyed animating Mickey, every drawing is loaded with charm. He took the classic Fred Moore model and made it his own, a Mickey for the 1950s.
The drawing in which Mickey pulls his hat down is one of the most appealing Disney drawings I have ever seen!


  1. Great post. I love this era of Mickey.

  3. John Lounsbery is my favorite Disney animator...and under-rated at that, so thanks so much Andreas!

  4. This brings me great memories. Thanks for this cool article. It's amazing how much history and stories are behind an animation character, right? It's also awesome how a character can be so powerful and life changer... That only happens when the message you want to give is complete and out there. INCREDIBLE. In you can also find the importance of animation....

    Thanks so much for sharing.
