The Disney Archives have released a newly discovered sketch from 1938, “Mickey’s Toothache,” part of a never finished cartoon.  “Mickey’s Toothache” was created in April 1938 by artist Ferdinand Horvath and featured Mickey visiting the dentist in which he takes too much laughing gas and has a “nightmare” about a world inhabited by living teeth, dental floss and a crazy dentist’s chair.

Disney Archives Director Becky Cline said the forgotten piece of artwork was discovered in the Walt Disney Archives, in a folder lost for more than 74 years. It was discovered just a few months ago.

“Mickey’s Toothache” is just one of several unveilings being planned as part of this year’s D23 Disney Fanniversary Celebration. The sketch will be included in a 90-minute presentation showcasing some of this year’s other major Disney anniversaries in 10 different U.S. cities (Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Newark, Orlando, Phoenix, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington, D.C.).

While most people think of Walt Disney himself in regards to the creation of Mickey Mouse, Horvath was a large part of the early Disney years.   He worked for the studio from 1934 through 1944 and produced between 70 and 80 animated shorts.  He also worked on the production of “Snow White.”
