    In the Bag Humphrey Bear Production Cel with Painted Background (Walt Disney, 1956). "First you stick a rag, put it in the bag, bump-bump, then you bend your back, put it in the sack, bump-bump, that's the way it's done, it's a lot of fun, bump-bump, cuttin' capers, puttin' papers in the bag!" Humphrey Bear stars in this classic short directed by Jack Hannah. Released 7/27/1956, In the Bag was the very last Disney theatrical short to be distributed by RKO Radio Pictures. "The Humphrey Hop" song from the film was so popular that Disney released a version of it as a single. This wonderful hand-inked and hand-painted production cel of the very hard to find Humphrey Bear is a great image, framed under Plexiglas with a mat window size of 11.25" x 9.5" and an overall frame size of 18.5" x 16.5". The cel is displayed over a beautiful custom hand-painted background, and it shows minor handling wear with light wrinkling. The condition is Very Good, and the frame is sold as is.
