    Description

    Pinocchio Cleo and Figaro Production Cel on Key Master Background (Walt Disney, 1940). Geppetto's pets were breakout stars from this, the second animated feature film from Walt Disney Studios. They even went on to star in their own short in 1943 titled Figaro and Cleo. This is an original hand-inked, hand-painted production cel of this adorable duo over the original Key Master hand-painted production background from this scene. This exact image can be seen around the 23:34 mark in Pinocchio as they watch Geppetto and Pinocchio set off all of the alarm clocks in his workshop. Both characters are in full-figure and measure approximately 2.5" and 4.25" tall respectively. The gouache and watercolor background is exquisitely detailed. While this was Disney's second feature film, it was regarded by many who worked on it as the first one that they got right, having learned so much from the production of Snow White. This is an exceptional one-of-a-kind Key Master setup featuring nice, large, happy images of two adorable Disney characters in their feature film debut. The piece is framed under Plexiglas with a mat opening of 11.5" x 8.25" in a 22.5" x 19.5" frame. Condition is Very Good. Frame is sold as-is.
