    Fantasia Mickey Mouse as The Sorcerer's Apprentice Production Cel on Master Production Background (Walt Disney, 1940). After conjuring a butterfly, sorcerer Yen Sid yawns and places his magical hat down and leaves the room. Mickey Mouse seizes the opportunity to try it on and disastrous events quickly ensue. You can see this around the 2:38 mark into this segment of Disney Studio's most ambitious feature film produced at the time. This is original hand-inked hand-painted production cel of Mickey Mouse in arguably his greatest role as the Sorcerer's Apprentice over a hand-painted production/pre-production background. This Master setup was sold at a Walt Disney Studio auction held at the 1993 Disneyana Convention held in Orlando, Florida which was only the second convention ever held. Mickey full-figure measures 5" tall and the hat 3". Provenance on this piece is impeccable considering this it was sold directly by the Walt Disney Company, taken from their archives. The Master setup comes complete with a Disney Studio/Disneyana Convention Certificate of Authenticity. It is in a frame of 18.5" x 15.5" with a mat opening of 10" x 7". Condition is Very Good and frame is sold as-is.
