    Ferdinand the Bull Production Cel Courvoisier Setup (Walt Disney, 1938). "Then came the Bull! And you know who that was, don't you? Ferdinand!" says narrator Don Wilson. This is an original Courvoisier production cel of Ferdinand as he is about to enter the bullring. You can find this scene at the 5:40 mark. The cel is on a Courvoisier hand-painted/airbrushed background with "Ferdinand Madrid" above the entrance! This short has Walt Disney doing the voice of Ferdinand's Mother, and animator Milt Kahl doing the voice of Ferdinand. This heartfelt short won the Academy Award for Best Cartoon Short. This is a great image, and one we have not seen ever before in cel art. Cel and background measure 10" x 9.5"; "©1938 Walt Disney Productions" is printed on the bottom right border. A blue Walt Disney Productions stamp is on the reverse. Studio blue stamp is on back of art. Some tape on border from a previous framing, otherwise Very Good condition.
