Description

Mickey's Service Station Mickey and Goofy Production Cel and Master Background (Walt Disney, 1935). In one of his very last black and white cartoons, Mickey, along with Goofy and Donald, do their best to find a squeaking sound in Pete's roadster. Naturally, they take the car apart looking for the source of the annoying sound (turns out to be a cricket)! A very funny short, long considered one of Mickey's best, this Ben Sharpsteen-directed cartoon enlisted the help of Disney legends Milt Kahl, Art Babbitt, Jack Kinney, Bill Tytla, Eric Larson, Ferdinand Hovarth, and Wollie Reitherman, with voices by Clarence "Ducky" Nash, Pinto Colvig, and even Walt Disney himself (as Mickey, of course).
This is an original hand-inked and painted production nitrate cel of Mickey and Goofy, with Pete's car, placed over a Master hand-painted background from the film. This is believed to be the only black and white production cel featuring Goofy, in private hands. This Master setup is completely original, with no restoration done to the paint or ink lines. The nitrate cel has a slightly wavy appearance, typical of vintage nitrate cels; overall condition is Fine. Both the background and cel have production numbers that are hidden by the mat, which has an opening of 11.5" x 7.5". The art is framed with glass for an overall size of 22.5" x 18.5".
In 2006, a black and white Mickey Mouse setup from The Pet Store sold for a whopping $225,000. We expect a LOT of interest in this iconic setup, so get those bids in early!


Walt Disney Studios - Fab Five: . Relating to Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Pluto, Minnie Mouse, and Goofy.

I popped open one of the beers, put my boots up on the desk, turned up the volume on my monitor and followed my watch list and while I was outbid on my proof Walkers I got a winning bid on a 67+ CAC BTW. Shoot, anniversaries don't come much better than t
