    Fantasia The Sorcerer's Apprentice Mickey Mouse Color Model Cel for Limited Edition (Walt Disney, c. 1990s). "The Sorcerer's Apprentice," perhaps the best-known Mickey Mouse appearance after his debut in 1928's Steamboat Willie, was adapted from Goethe's poem "Der Zauberlehrling." It is the story of wizard Yen Sid's ambitious, but lazy, assistant who attempts to work some of the magical feats of his master before he knows how to properly control them. Mickey plays the role of the apprentice. In this lot we have a terrific color model cel featuring the iconic mouse in his famous role. The color model cel was used in the production of a limited edition serigraph print published by Walt Disney Art Classics in the 1990s. The cel was hand-inked and hand-painted at the world-famous Disney Ink and Paint Department located on the studio lot in Burbank. Color model cels are considered rare and highly sought after by astute collectors. The piece measures approximately 9" x 9" and is in a frame of 17.25" x 17.25" under Plexiglas with a mat opening of 7.5" x 7.5". A Disney Certificate of Authenticity is included and affixed to the back of the frame. Frame sold as-is. Artwork is in Fine condition. From the MacLaughlin Family Disney Collection.
