    Just Mickey/The Haunted House Mickey Mouse Production Cel and Painted Background (Walt Disney, 1929-30). Disney Animation collectors and Mickey Mouse fans, take note! This rare hand-inked, hand-painted nitrate production cel featuring Mickey Mouse is one of the earliest Mickey cels known to exist. It's from the Walt Disney-directed short, Just Mickey, released on 3/21/30. The short had an alternate title, Fiddlin' Around, and we see our hero playing his violin here. This great black and white full-figure image measures 4", and shows his early double brow design. All paint on the cel is original. The cel is placed over an original black and white painted background from the Mickey Mouse short The Haunted House, also directed by Walt, and released on 12/2/29. The background can be seen around the 1:59 mark. This historic lot is one of the earliest Micky Mouse setups we've ever seen! Custom matted with an opening of 11" x 8", and framed with Plexiglas. Fine condition.
