    Mickey Mouse Works Pluto Presentation Cel with Key Master Background (Walt Disney, 1999). After a decade in which animated entertainment was celebrated in feature-length films and television series, animation's original form, cartoon shorts, came into its own in 1999 with Disney's Mickey Mouse Works. Without an established schedule or routine, Mickey Mouse Works was designed to look like one spontaneous flow. Each half-hour episode consisted of a variety of cartoons, varying in length from 90 seconds to 12 minutes. In this lot we have an exceptional presentation cel featuring Mickey's pal, Pluto. The cel was hand-inked and hand-painted onto acetate and paired with the original production background as noted on the piece. The cel was hand-signed by two of "Walt's Nine Old Men," Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston. This is a fantastic image of Pluto, measuring 4" tall. The piece is in a frame of 21" x 19" under Plexiglas with a mat opening of 11.75" x 9". Frame sold as-is. A Certificate of Authenticity issued by Disney is included and affixed to the reverse. This would make a wonderful addition to any animation art collection! Condition is Fine.
