DescriptionAlice in Wonderland Cheshire Cat Production/Color Model Cel (Walt Disney, 1951). "If I was looking for the White Rabbit... I'd ask the Mad Hatter" says the Cheshire Cat to Alice. The cat with the great goofy grin is featured on this full body cel, in all his pink and purple glory! It's a rare glimpse of this elusive feline's full-figure image and it is a hand-inked, hand-painted production/color model cel with a 5.5" tall figure. The cel is labeled in the bottom as #175 and is seen at about the 57:05 mark. The Cat has been placed on a print background for presentation purposes. Beloved character actor Sterling Holloway was the voice of this fan-favorite Alice in Wonderland creature, and he was animated by Disney Legend Ward Kimball. This is without a doubt one of the finest animation cels of this character that we have ever seen... Wow! Framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 25" x 20" x 1.5", with an interior mat opening of 14.5" x 9.5". Frame is sold as-is. The cel is in Fine condition. From the Robert Forbes Collection
