This was the first animated feature film to receive a Best Movie Academy Award Nomination. Hand-made presentation cels were painted at the Disney Ink and Paint Department from original archived artwork. This one-of-one cel was placed on the Key Master hand-painted production background.

This is lot #55 from this auction, of Gaston and LeFou. LeFou is saying "Oh boy! Belle's gonna get a surprise of her life, huh Gaston?" Gaston replies "Yup! This is her lucky day!" Original one-of-one hand-painted cel on a Key Master hand-painted stunning production background. Setup measures 11.5" x 17", in a mat of 20" x 16" with a mat opening of 11" x 16".
