    Fun and Fancy Free "Bongo" Production Background (Walt Disney, 1947). "'Bongo'? Now, what in the world is Bongo?" Jiminy Cricket takes a close look at a record on the shelf, introducing the first segment of the 1947 Disney package film Fun and Fancy Free. Seen at the 5:38 mark of the film, this outstanding original 16 field 5-peghole production background is beautifully rendered in gouache in unbelievable detail. The leathery shine of the album covers and the gleam of their metallic trim particularly stands out. Background art of the film is attributed to Ed Starr, Claude Coats, Art Riley, Brice Mack, Ray Huffine and Ralph Hulett. The Bongo cover in the foreground is added to the original production background (originally depicting Dinah Shore) for publicity purposes. The painting shows minor handling and edge wear with some trimming in the lower corners. A protective cel is taped to the top of the piece. There are production notes written at the bottom edge, and the condition is Very Good.
