"Puppy Love," released on September 2, 1933, is a black-and-white animated short film produced by Walt Disney Productions and directed by Wilfred Jackson. Walt Disney is the voice of Mickey Mouse and Marcellite Garner is the voice of Minnie Mouse.


The story of "Puppy Love" is that Mickey and his dog Pluto have come to call on Minnie and her dog Fifi. Mickey brings a bouquet of flowers and a heart shaped box of candy. As Mickey and Minnie begin playing the piano and singing the song "Puppy Love," Pluto and Fifi begin to flirt with each other. Pluto gives the unopened box of chocolates, that Mickey had brought to Minnie, to Fifi. When Fifi eats the chocolates, Pluto puts Fifi's bone into the empty box and returns it to the living room. When Minnie opens the candy box for the first time and reveals the bone, Minnie mistakingly thinks Mickey was playing a mean joke on her and suddenly a violent argument begins. Mickey and Pluto storm out of the house; and they along with Minnie, each vow to give up the opposite sex. But when Fifi reveals to Minnie the heart shaped box with a few left over chocolates; Minnie realizes that it was the dogs that had eaten the chocolates and then put the dog bone in the box. Mickey and Minnie, along with Pluto and Fife, reunite in the end!


This is an extremely rare original hand painted and hand inked production animation cel of Mickey Mouse playing the piano from the early black and white short film "Puppy Love," 1933. He is eyes open, smiling, and you can even see his tail hanging off the edge of the piano bench. This is a full untrimmed cel of Mickey with peg holes and the production rotation number in black ink lower right. This is a wonderful image of Mickey Mouse and is museum perfect; as being one of the very few production cels to be had from the Walt Disney black-and-white cartoons of the 1930's,
