    Pinocchio Cleo's Fish Bowl Painted Background (Walt Disney, 1940). This landmark animated feature film had backgrounds painted by Claude Coats, Merle Cox, Ed Starr, and Ray Huffine. This is a Master production/pre-production background of Cleo's fish bowl. It has all Disney approvals and studio stamps on the reverse. It was pasted up to a backing board at one time, as you can see glue on back. Magnificently painted in gouache on 11" x 14" lightweight board, marked Seq 10.1/Sc 52 on the reverse. You can see the fishbowl in many scenes in this film. The pink shell on the side of Cleo's castle is inside the bowl. A stunning piece of highly-detailed artwork! Pinholes in corners, minor handling wear. In Very Good condition.
