    Ferdinand the Bull Five Men in Fancy Hats Production Cel and Key Master Background Courvoisier Setup (Walt Disney, 1938). "One day five men came in fancy hats to pick the biggest, fastest, roughest bull to fight in the bull fights!" This is an original Courvoisier hand-inked, hand-painted cel of the five men in funny hats who pick Ferdinand the Bull. This is the key scene where they see Ferdinand react after he sits on a bumble bee and goes wild. They exclaim after seeing his bravado, "Bravo!" "Excellente!" "Magnifico!" "Splendico!" "This is the one!" This is from the Disney short inspired from the book by Munro Leaf, The Story of Ferdinand. It was released on 11/25/38 and directed by Dick Rickard. It won the Academy Award for best-animated short. This is a trimmed cel of 11" x 9". The cel is on its Key Master foliage background that is also painted on cel. You can see this image around the 3:47 mark into the short. Original Courvoisier labels are on the reverse. The original Courvoisier cream mat with script writing is included. Minor paint separation in spots, overall Very Good condition.
