    Bambi Production Cel Courvoisier Setup with Master Production Background and Walt Disney Signature (Walt Disney, 1942). "Those are birds... He's trying to say bird -- say bird!" says Thumper to the young Bambi. He tries, and we hear "Bir... bir... bir!" This is an outstanding hand-inked, hand-painted production cel of Bambi and Thumper with all his brothers and sisters. This is an original Courvoisier cel setup in its original frame with cream-colored mat and script writing. The cel has hand-painted production cel overlays and is on a Master hand-painted production background. The background can be seen when Bambi's mother stands by the downed tree in the "Say Bird" sequence. The original Courvoisier mat is boldly hand-signed by Walt Disney (1901-1966). The Master setup is framed with glass for an overall size of 16.5" x 14". Small separation in cel overlay of log, slight curling on bunny, overall condition is Very Good. A letter from Dave Smith with Walt Disney Archives dated November 2, 1995, confirming the signature, is included in the lot. One of the single most beautiful Bambi setups we have seen!
