    Mickey's Christmas Carol Mickey Mouse as Bob Cratchit Production Cel with Line Test Background Setup (Walt Disney, 1983). "Oh no Spirit, I didn't want this to happen. Tell me these events can be changed!" says Ebenezer Scrooge to the Spirit of Christmas Future as he watches Bob (Mickey) lay Tiny Tim's crutch on his headstone in this heartfelt scene. This is an important 16 field hand-painted 3-cel setup of Bob Cratchit with Tiny Tim's cane, his family leaving, and the line test cel of the background layout. Burny Mattinson directed this Academy Award nominated short that brought Mickey Mouse back to the big screen after being away since 1951. This film was originally released in the theaters on 12/16/83. This Key Scene is shown around the 36:25 mark into the short. The cels are laminated, with a Disney seal on the top cel. There is some slight haloing/lamination separation on Bob's pants and on the character outline. Good condition.
