(Walt Disney Productions, 1939) Original 15 in. x 40 in. Australian pre-war “Daybill” poster, combination silkscreen and stone-lithograph. Goofy and Wilbur holds its place in animation history as the first star-billing for Mickey’s confused, clumsy, but always amiable friend. In this initial entry to what became a long string of starring vehicles for Goofy, he fishes with his own little friend Wilbur, a grasshopper, as bait, and must rescue him repeatedly from various jaws of death. On linen, with moderate retouching to be expected for a silkscreen poster (generally more fragile than other media), still presents itself as Fine.
