DescriptionDumbo Casey Junior Production Cel and Courvoisier Background (Walt Disney, 1941). "It's Casey Junior comin' round the track, comin' round the track with a smoky stack...´The circus train rolls down the track in one of the best musical moments from Dumbo, in this original hand-inked, hand-painted production cel. Toot toot!! This is a delightful setup, one of the best we've seen from this fan-favorite animated feature, Disney's fourth. It was released on 10/23/1941, a short but sweet feature that helped the studio recoup money lost when war broke out in Europe, cutting off distribution on earlier films Pinocchio and Fantasia. The cel is placed on a custom hand-painted Courvoisier background that nicely matches the Florida seaside scenery; note the small WDP logo in the lower right. The setup is matted with an opening of 11.75" x 8.25", and framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 17.5" x 14". Frame is sold as-is. Setup condition is Very Good with minor waviness along the cel edges. From the Robert Forbes Collection.
