"Have you heard of the Gypsy Switch your majesty?" asks Professor Emelius Browne to King Leonidas, after he has switched his whistle for the King's Royal Star. This is an original 16 field hand-painted color model cel of King Leonidas, right after he realized the switch of the star and whistle happened. He is about to jump on them on the bed as they make their escape, but he is changed into a rabbit. This is the largest cel of this character we have ever seen, with an image size of 9" x 10". A working live-action matt photo that was blended in with animation of Prof. Browne is also included. The great cel is in a mat measuring 20" x 16" with a mat opening of 14" x 9.5". Production photo is on 3-peghole paper and measures 13" x 11". A great Bedknobs lot! Minor handling wear, with a small crack in the King's robe and finger, otherwise Good condition.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
