    Melody Time Bumble Boogie Bumble Bee Production Cel with Non-Studio Background (Walt Disney, 1948). Here's one of the rarest Disney characters we have ever come across. The Bumble Boogie Bumble Bee was from a sequence in Disney's Melody Time feature film, a surreal swing-jazz variation of Risky-Korsakov's classic "Flight of the Bumblebee," originally considered for Fantasia. The cel has been trimmed and nicely paired with an original hand-painted background from an earlier Columbia Studios Color Rhapsodies cartoon. The paint is Fine, with an image area of 11" x 8" that has been matted and framed with glass to an overall 17" x 14". The little dancing bee is 2". This is a beautiful setup with a Disney character we've never seen before -- a rare animation find!
