    Orange Bird Production Cel and Animation Drawing (Walt Disney/Florida Citrus Commission, c. 1970). "A day without orange juice is like a day without sunshine..." Viewers who grew up during the early 1970s will surely remember the chirpy Anita Bryant as she jingled her way through her home, extolling the myriad virtues of Florida orange juice. Conceived as a joint partnership between the Florida Citrus Commission and Walt Disney World, the Orange Bird character "lived" at the Sunshine Tree Pavilion in Walt Disney World. Plenty of tie-in merchandise featuring the perky little bird was produced during the character's run; though long out-of-production, it all remains popular and is highly sought-after to this day. Commercial animation studio Playhouse Pictures in Hollywood provided the animation for the memorable series of TV spots. This hand-inked, hand-painted 12 field production cel features an adorable image of a cheerful little Orange Bird, standing 2" tall on a 12 field 2-cel setup. Included with it is an original animation drawing, rendered in colored pencil and graphite. Very unique piece of animation and Florida history! In Fine condition. The cels show handling and have several pinholes in both upper corners. The drawing has pinholes, creases, light staining and a tear along the top repaired with clear tape. Condition for the lot is Good.
