    Bedknobs and Broomsticks Bear Color Model Cel and Master Background (Walt Disney, 1971). "People? People? OH NO!!" says the fishing Bear as he pulls in the bed and all its people that go with it. No big catch! This is a rare studio hand-painted 16 field production cel/color model cel of Bear, in a nice large image measuring 7". The cel is on a pre-production Master hand-painted background from this film, painted by Disney Legend inductee, Mr. Al Dempster (1911-2001). Background is in gouache on lightweight board. This background really has a Jungle Book feel to it. Al Dempster was the background supervisor on that film. The background alone is a stunning piece of artwork. Hand-painted cel and background are matted, with an opening of 11" x 10"; overall mat size is 20" x 16". Minor handling wear. Very Good condition. From the Joe Hale Archives.
