    Pinocchio Geppetto, Figaro, and Pinocchio Production Cel with Master Background (Walt Disney, 1940). "Oh look father! What are those?" asks a very excited Pinocchio. "Those are your schoolmates, girls and boys" says Geppetto. This an outstanding pair of hand-inked, hand-painted production cels of Pinocchio with his new vest on, school book and apple for his teacher. Great smiling image of 2". Next to him is another hand-inked, hand-painted production cel of Geppetto grabbing Figaro, as Figaro began to follow Pinocchio to School. He says "School is not for you!" Great overall image of 5". The cels are on a stunning master hand-painted production background of the front porch to Geppetto's home. Backgrounds in this film were done by Claude Coats, Merle Cox, Ed Star, and Ray Huffine. The backgrounds of the town in this film were inspired by the concept paintings of Gustaf Tenggren. This background is a museum worthy piece of art on its own. The detail is stunning! This cel and master background setup is in a frame of 25.5" x 21" under Plexiglas with a mat opening of 14" x 10.5". Frame is sold as-is. Cels have a slight curl. Overall cels and master production background are in Very Good condition. From the Forbes Collection.
