    Fantasia "Dance of the Hours" Ben Ali Gator and the Gator Dancers Production Cel Setup (Walt Disney, 1940). This is one impressive cel! It's just so fun and kinetic that you can't help but smile when you see it. From the "Dance of the Hours" segment, Ben Ali Gator leads the charge through the palace in search of his beloved Hyacinth Hippo. The colors on these hand-painted production cels are stunning; even more so as they are placed on a non-production, custom, purple airbrushed background, for presentation purposes, that really makes them pop. The gators measure between 2" to 3.5" tall each, with Ben Ali (falling into the water pool) 3.5" tall himself. They stretch 14" across the 14.5" x 11" mat opening in the 23.5" x 20" Plexiglas front frame. In Fine condition.
