    Alice in Wonderland Tulgey Wood Characters Production Cel (Walt Disney, 1951). "'Be patient' is very good advice, but the waiting makes me curious. And I'd love the change should something strange begin" Alice sings melancholically as the unusual creatures of Tulgey Wood look on. From the musical number "Very Good Advice", this hand-inked and hand-painted original production cel of the quacking horn creatures can be seen at the 54:58 mark of the absurdist Disney film Alice in Wonderland. Based on the Alice books by Lewis Carroll, this classic and colorful film was released on 7/26/1951 to lukewarm success critically and commercially. But in 1974 Disney gave Alice in Wonderland its first theatrical re-release and promoted it as a film in tune with the "psychedelic times", even using the song "White Rabbit" by Jefferson Airplane in radio commercials. The re-release was an immense success, and helped solidify Alice in Wonderland in the canon of Disney masterpieces. This wonderful image measures 5.25" x 3.25" on the 16 field cel, and it is taped to a printed background for presentation purposes. The background image area is 12" x 8". The cel shows minor handling wear with a small fold in the upper left corner and a small tear on the right side. The upper right corner also has a small piece missing. The condition overall is Very Good.
