    Ferdinand the Bull Bugler Production Cel (Walt Disney, 1938). "They had a parade into the Bull Ring" says the narrator at about the 4:21 mark in to the short. This is when you can see this hand-inked, hand-painted cel of a man on horseback with a bugle who leads the bullfighter procession into the ring. This short was directed by Dick Rickard and was released on 11/25/38. It won the Academy Award for Best Short in 1938, beating out Mother Goose Goes Hollywood. This is a full cel with a great image of about 7" x 6". Some paint loss in the horse's legs, and the rider's hat feather. The cel is on a print background that reads "Ferdinand the Bull 1968," added for presentation purposes. Secondary characters from this short are very hard to find. Many of the animators on this short appear as caricatures on screen (Fred Moore, Ward Kimball, etc.) The cel is matted with an opening size of 9.5" x 7.5", and an overall size of 14" x 11". Good condition.
