    Lend a Paw Pluto Production Cel Setup (Walt Disney, 1941). "Save him Pluto! Save the poor little kitten ... Be kind! Be merciful" says the angelic side of Pluto's conscience before the devilish side takes over. This is a great hand-painted production background of the steps to Mickey Mouse's house --where Mickey kicks Pluto out after he is caught fighting with the kitten he has just saved from drowning. This short was released on 10/3/41, directed by Clyde Geronimi -- and won the Academy Award for Best Short. You can see this great hand-painted 12 field 5-peghole background at about the 5:02 mark in the finished film. A great hand-inked, hand-painted 1940s Pluto production cel sits on the background. The cel has been restored, then trimmed to the image and mounted to a new cel. Pluto has his red collar on. Great image of almost 6". Professionally matted in two layers, with an opening of 10.5" and 7.5". Outer dimensions, 16.5" x 13.75". This is a rare Pluto Master setup. In Fine condition.
