    Little Hiawatha Production Cel Courvoisier Setup (Walt Disney, 1937). This fan-favorite short was inspired by the poem "Song of Hiawatha" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. This Silly Symphony cartoon was directed by David Hand and released on 5/15/57. This is an outstanding Courvoisier hand-inked, hand-painted production cel of Little Hiawatha as he is hunting a grasshopper he comes across. This is right after his pants fall down during his hunting spree, after he lands his canoe. You can see this about 2:42 into the short. Great full-figure image of Little Hiawatha of 4". Cel is on a Courvoisier hand-painted background. The original Courvoisier mat with script writing is framed with glass for a size of 11" x 13". It appears to be the original frame. The mat is hand-signed by Walt Disney (1901 - 1966) in a green-type Conte crayon. The green color matches the grass Little Hiawatha is hunting on. Mat opening is 5.5" x 7". Frame is sold as-is. Artwork condition is Very Good.
