    Pinocchio Jiminy Cricket Production Cel and Key Master Background (Walt Disney, 1940). "Kneel, Mr. Cricket", the Blue Fairy says to Jiminy Cricket. "I dub you Pinocchio's conscience, Lord High Keeper of the knowledge of right and wrong, counselor in moments of temptation, and guide along the straight and narrow path. Arise, Sir Jiminy Cricket." This is a stunning and rare piece of animation art from Walt Disney's second animated feature film. Pinocchio was made in response to the enormous worldwide success of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. In this piece we see Jiminy Cricket as the Blue fairy asks him, "Would you like to be Pinocchio's conscience?" from sequence 1.5, scenes: 44, 46, 48, and 50 which can be seen around the 17:36 time mark in the film. The Jiminy Cricket cel was hand-inked and hand-painted on acetate at the world-famous Walt Disney Ink and Paint Department in Burbank. The cel is trimmed to image and placed on the original Key Master background. Missing from this setup is the cel with the match box that Jiminy is standing on. A rare Key Master setup from Pinocchio in a matboard of 16.75" x 14". Artwork condition is Very Good.
