Walt Disney famously said “I only hope that we don’t lose sight of one thing – that it was all started by a mouse”. The same could be said of the art career of Toby Bluth. At the age of six, Toby was inspired to create his first original work of art, which he titled “Happy Birthday Pluto”. The young boy recognised his future calling as an artist with that very sketch. Fast forward about thirty years and Toby, now a seasoned theater actor, director and art director – as well as an accomplished animator for film and TV – decided to reunite the original gang plus an addition 23 characters, to celebrate another happy occasion. This time Mickey is the honoured guest, and is surrounded by the wonderful characters that influenced Toby’s life as a child in the 40s. Another 30 years has now passed, and in June 2008 Toby was determined to complete his original vision. His final full-coloured rendering of the party features a total of 34 beloved Disney characters, all gathered to celebrate with our favourite mouse – Mickey. When asked how he arrived at the party theme, Toby said says “As a kid, Birthdays and Christmas are very exciting times, so naturally I was drawn to a celebration theme. But as an adult I wanted to pay tribute to Walt Disney, because he was the original voice of Mickey Mouse, and to Mickey himself on the occasion of his 80th anniversary”.
