    Description

    Gulliver's Travels Gabby and the King Production Cel Setup with Key Master Background (Max Fleischer, 1939). "I've got the giant" says Gabby. "Where is he?" asks King Little. Out there your majesty!" This is a very rare original hand-inked hand-painted production cel set up of Gabby, King Little from Fleischer Studios' first animated feature film which was a box office success. The characters measure 3" to 6" tall on 12 field cels. The hand-inked, hand-painted nitrate production cels are over their Key Master hand-painted production background. This is the scene where the King dresses in his robes to go see Gulliver for the first time, and it can be seen starting around the 36:12. It's a remarkable background of the castle interior. Artwork of this quality from this landmark animated feature film is considered exceptionally rare. The film's background artists were Louis Jambor, Robert Little, Shane Miller, and Erich Schenk. The Fleischer Studio Key Master setup is in a frame of 24" x 20" with a mat opening of 14" x 11". Condition is Very Good. Frame is sold as-is.
