    Description

    In the Bag Humphrey the Bear "The Humphrey Hop" Production Cel and Custom Painted Background Setup (Walt Disney, 1956). "That's the way it's done -- it's a lot of fun -- BUMP-BUMP!" These are the lyrics to "The Humphrey Hop," which Ranger J.J. Woodlore sings to his clean-up bear crew at Brownstone National Park. The source is a great short, directed by Jack Hannah. Humphrey the Bear was a 1950s Disney shorts star. This rare hand-inked, hand-painted production cel depicts Humphrey as he picks up trash to the tune of "The Humphrey Hop." The short was released on 7/27/56. Great image of almost 6". One of the best pure Humphrey the Bear cels we have seen. The cel is on a beautiful custom hand-painted background, made for presentation purposes. Matted in upholstered fabric with an opening of 11" x 9". Glass framed to 18.5" x 16.5". In Fine condition.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
