    José Carioca Publicity Cel (Walt Disney, undated). Disney's Brazilian-born José Carioca, the cigar-smoking, dapper parrot, starred in two 1940s feature films, Saludos Amigos, and The Three Caballeros. We can't say for sure, but this handsome hand-inked and painted Publicity cel set-up probably dates from the character's use on a 1960s television special. The image, including smoke trail from José's cigar, measures approximately 5" x 6.5". There is some cracking of the paint in José's right foot and left hand and there are a few tiny areas of paint loss in the hand. Part of the smoke trail is on a separate cel. The cel is taped to an old colored paper background that has been lightstruck from years of being framed. The overall condition is Very Good.
