    Mickey's 60th Birthday Special Mickey Mouse Production Cel (Walt Disney, 1988). When Mickey Mouse turned 60, the Walt Disney Company produced an NBC Special, Mickey's 60th Birthday which first aired on 11/18/88. In the show, Mickey's 60th Birthday Special is being taped and as his appearance in the show draws to a close, Mickey finds himself trying to decide how he should present himself to his audience. Rummaging through an old trunk, he finds the magic hat from The Sorcerer's Apprentice and considers using it, but he is warned by the sorcerer who owns the hat that he should not be using other people's magic when he has his own. With that in mind, Mickey goes out on stage along with his birthday cake, provided by Roger Rabbit, who realizes too late that he placed a stick of dynamite on the cake instead of a candle. In his attempt to put the dynamite out, Roger ends up destroying the set, which prompts Mickey to use his magic to repair the damage. The audience screams for more and Mickey agrees to do so, but when he does, he suddenly vanishes. This is a great hand-painted production cel of Mickey from the special placed over a print copy of the birthday cake. The image area measures approximately 6" x 6.5". The piece is in a frame of 15.5" x 13.75" with a mat opening of 9.5" x 8". Frame sold as-is. This is a great Mickey image with the Sorcerer's hat. Very Good condition. From the MacLaughlin Family Disney Collection.
