    Mickey's Christmas Carol Uncle Scrooge and Mickey Production Cel Setup with Master Production Background (Walt Disney, 1983). "And a bah humbug to you!" shouts Ebenezer Scrooge McDuck in this early scene from Mickey's triumphant return to the big screen after over 30 years. This Academy Award-nominated theatrical short also brought back a host of characters from Disney films such as Robin Hood, Pinocchio, and The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad. The two hand-painted 16 field cels feature full-figure images of Scrooge who measures 5.5" x 3.5" and Mickey who measure 3.5" x 4.25". Both appear a few minutes apart with Mickey at the 2:37 mark and Scrooge at 5:24. They are over an original hand-painted production background from the 3:31 mark. This wonderful gouache background of Scrooge's office is marked SEQ 001 Sc 19 and includes its black line-test overlay cel. It's an exceptional setup from one of the last traditionally-animated Mickey shorts. The art is in a 20" x 16" mat with a 14" x 11" opening. Condition is Very Good.
