    Description

    Orange Bird Production Cel (Walt Disney/Florida Citrus Commission, c. 1970). "Remember - 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 (before her more controversial days) 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. Playhouse Pictures in Hollywood provided the animation for the memorable series of commercials. This hand-inked, hand-painted 12 field production cel features an adorable image of a cheerful little Orange Bird, standing at nearly 3.5" high. Very unique piece of animation - and Florida - history! In Fine condition.
