    "Albatross Airlines" The Rescuers Limited Edition Cel #183/500 with Ollie Johnston Signature (Walt Disney, 1989). On a mission to save orphan Penny, special agents Bernard and Bianca of the Rescue Aid Society climb aboard Orville in this wonderful hand-painted limited edition cel. Titled "Albatross Airlines," this image is from Sequence 5/Scene 63. It was created using original production artwork from the Disney archives and painted at the Ink and Paint Department located on the studio lot. Released in 1989, it was an instant sell-out. Hand-numbered 183/500, the cel is over a print background and bears a Disney seal. As an added bonus, the mat is signed by Disney Legend Inductee and one of "Walt's Nine Old Men," Mr. Ollie Johnston (1912 - 2008) who was the supervising animator on Orville. The art is in a frame measuring 20" x 17" with a mat opening of 14" x 11". The edition numbers are slightly smeared; otherwise, condition is Very Good. Frame is sold as-is.
