Earlier this month we toured the Walt Disney Family Museum for the opening its latest fantastic exhibit, “Mickey Mouse: from Walt to the World.” The exhibit is part of the yearlong celebration of the museum’s 10th anniversary and was curated by legendary animator Andreas Deja.
One of the centerpieces of the new exhibit is a mural from “Bob’s Burgers” original background designer Simon Norris. The black and white mural emphasizes the importance of line drawings and is full of Easter eggs and tributes to animation and the bay area, including the museum itself. Each Mickey is from a different era and over all there are 12 hidden Mickey ears.

We also wanted to share a few more of the more than 400 drawings and artifacts from the “Mickey Mouse: from Walt to the World” exhibit.
Thanks again to Marianne Alvarez for going to the exhibits opening night and sharing her photos with us.
