    Ferdinand the Bull Production Cel Courvoisier Setup (Walt Disney, 1938). ). "All I want to do is sit and smell flowers." This is a magnificent original production cel of the flower-smelling bull from the 1937 short directed by Dick Rickard. Still in its Courvoisier setup, the 6" x 3.5" image of the title character has been meticulously trimmed from his nitrate cel and applied to a custom hand-painted airbrush background. This film won an Academy Award in 1939 and is broadcast in several countries every year on Christmas Eve as a part of the annual Disney holiday special From All of Us to All of You. The show is especially popular in Sweden where it has aired every year since 1959 and has become a Christmas tradition. This is an adorable and large image of the young Ferdinand that can be seen at the start of the film around the 0:51 mark. It is matted and framed under glass with a mat opening of 8" x 8" in a 12.5" x 12.5" frame. Small paint cracks, slight clouding of the overlay cel and the image has separated slightly from the background in spots, otherwise, condition is Very Good for an 80 year old cel. Frame is sold as-is.
