    "Leader of the Band" Mickey Mouse Limited Edition Cel #21/250 (Walt Disney, 2000). "Yay Mickey!" This is a very unique and rare Walt Disney studio hand-painted limited edition cel, called "Leader of the Band." It was a cel that was part of the Walt Disney "Ink and Paint Tour." This was a Fine Art/Animation Gallery tour where artists from the famous Disney Studio Ink and Paint Department would paint cels in front of fans and collectors. As the piece was painted right in front of them, the purchaser could choose the color of the cap with stars to Mickey's right -- this one is painted blue. This Mickey Mouse Club image was an edition of only 250 pieces; this one is #21. A great deal of opening animation for The Mickey Mouse Club was done by Disney Legend Inductee, Mr. Bill Justice (1914 - 2011). He has hand-signed this very hard-to-find Disney Ink and Paint Tour limited edition. This is the only Disney Ink and Paint Tour piece to have a Disney Legend Signature. Bandleader Mickey is a large 10" image. Matted with an opening of 14" x 13", and framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 20" x 20". A Disney seal is on the cel and Disney COA is on back of the frame. Frame is sold as-is; cel condition is Very Good.
