    Pinocchio Geppetto and Pinocchio Production Cel with Custom Overlay and Painted Background (Walt Disney, 1940). "Music, Professor!" says Geppetto as he starts his music boxes and makes the puppet Pinocchio walk to the music of "Little Wooden Head" song. At the end of the song, he says "Up we go. You're a cute little fella, and that smile." At that moment, Figaro is jealous and Geppetto reaches down to pick him up. This is a rare trimmed hand-inked, hand-painted production cel of Geppetto holding Pinocchio while he is still just a wooden puppet. The Blue Fairy will not arrive till bedtime. Cel is trimmed to approximately 9" x 9" with great image sizes of 4" and 6". The cel is on a beautiful custom hand-painted background and overlay, made for presentation purposes. All three are in a Plexiglas-front frame measuring 15" x 14" with a mat opening of 11" x 9". Frame is sold as-is, cel is condition is Very Good. Please note: The production cel of both Geppetto and Pinocchio is NOT trimmed to image like most examples.
