    Figaro and Frankie Minnie Mouse and Figaro Production Cel Courvoisier Setup Signed by Walt Disney (Walt Disney, 1947). "Figaro, what are you doing by Frankie's cage?" screams Minnie Mouse with a broom in hand, at about the 1:42 mark in to the short. After his role in Pinocchio, Figaro was featured in seven theatrical shorts, in many as the star. This is a great Courvoisier cel setup of both Figaro and Minnie Mouse. Minnie is the hardest character of the Fab Five to find vintage production cels of, and she's seen here in an outstanding 8" image. She stands next to a hand-inked cel with a full-figure image of Figaro measuring 3". The cels are trimmed to image and placed on an airbrushed background for presentation purposes. A cream-colored mat with script title of "Figaro and Frankie" is in the setup. The mat is boldly signed in Conte crayon, "To Cheryl with our Best Wishes, Walt Disney." This is an authentic signature by Mr. Walt Disney (1901 - 1966). Many mats with "Walt Disney" autographs are actually done by Studio artists. Walt would personally sign items only on special occasion, and this is a rare one that was actually signed by Walt Disney himself! We believe this to be one of the nicest Minnie Mouse Courvoisier cels to have come our way. The mat has an opening of 9" x 7", and is framed with glass for an overall size of 17.5" x 16.25". There is light restoration to cel. Fine condition.
