    Little Mermaid Sebastian Production Cel and Master Background (Walt Disney, 1989). This hand-painted production cel is labeled #11 in the bottom right and is from the scene where Sebastian learns Ariel has not shown up for the performance with her sisters. The gorgeous hand-painted Master background is labeled SEQ 008 and Sc. 39 (which originally sold at Sotheby's "Art of The Little Mermaid" sale). That scene was cut from the final production so it does not appear in the film, however it pairs nicely with this cel! Sebastian measures 3.75" tall, and both are in 16 field 5-peghole format. It is accompanied with a COA. Fine condition.
