    Mickey Mouse Cartoon Opening Title Production Cel Animation Art Group (Walt Disney, c. 1950s). Here's something very rare and unusual. When Walt Disney animated shorts were re-distributed by Buena Vista, and 16MM prints were made for home use, new titles were made for the 16MM (and later 8MM) home market. Here are three "new" opening title cels for Mickey's Mechanical Man (1933), Mickey's Gala Premier (1933), and Trader Mickey (1932). All are 12-field cels with roman numerals inked in, of the films original release date, on the bottom borders. Matted to an overall size of 15" x 13". A very unusual find, in Fine condition, with some very minor paint loss to the Mechanical Man and Premier. All have slightly slipped from their mounting, in their mats.
