DescriptionMickey Mouse Works Mickey and Minnie Mouse Production Cel on Key Master Background and Drawing (Walt Disney, 1999).
Mickey Mouse Works was made to recreate the golden age of Disney's animated shorts, featuring some of Disney's most popular characters. By using basic colors and the original sound effects, tremendous effort was put forth to capture the look and feel of the classic Disney cartoons. In this offering we have a terrific Key Master setup featuring Mickey and Minnie paired with the matching drawing. The cel and the drawing both bear the seal of Walt Disney Animation. The cel is hand-painted on 12 field, 3-peghole acetate. The background is hand-painted in gouache on background board and is noted as "Original Production Background by Walt Disney Animation." The drawing was rendered in graphite on 12 field, 3-peghole animation paper. The cel is hand signed by two of 'Walt's Nine Old Men", Ollie Johnston (1912 - 2008) and Frank Thomas (1912 - 2004). Frank and Ollie are Disney Legend Inductees. The artwork in this lot are in a 34" x 18" frame which includes a placard that reads, "Mickey Mouse & Minnie Mouse Original Production Drawing Original Production Background." The show's producers, Bobs Gannaway and Tong Craig traditionally animated the first four episodes making cels for Mickey Mouse Works very rare! A certificate of authenticity issued by Disney is included. The frame in this lot is sold as-is. Artwork is in Very Good condition.
