    Jiminy Cricket Fire Fighter Storybook Illustration by Samuel Armstrong Original Art and Disneyland Honorary Citizen Certificate Group (Walt Disney, 1956/1985). That magical place known as Disneyland takes center stage in this great group of two items. First, an original painted illustration that adorned the first text page of Jiminy Cricket Fire Fighter, a Mickey Mouse Club storybook featuring artwork by Samuel Armstrong (1893 - 1976), best remembered as a background painter on classic films like Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Bambi. This is a superb image of Pinocchio's little pal (and "conscience") walking down a Disneyland street at night, done in ink and gouache on Bristol board measuring approximately 6.75" x 7". A color print of the published page is included. As a very special bonus, an untrimmed and unused "Disneyland Honorary Citizen" oversized certificate is with this lot. The image size is 11" x 15", with added white margin (including printer's crop marks) to an overall size of 12" x 16". Mickey Mouse, Snow White, Alice, Minnie Mouse, Dopey, Pinocchio, and Donald's nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie are all pictured on the certificate. Art condition is Very Good with minor handling wear; certificate is in Fine condition.
