    Nifty Nineties Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse Production Cel Setup with Courvoisier Background and Walt Disney Signature (Walt Disney, 1941). This classically-cool lot spotlights a hand-painted production cel of both Mickey and Minnie Mouse. This is an original Courvoisier setup. The cel is in its original mat, with the WDP stamp in the lower right corner. Directed by Riley Thompson, this short starred a stylized Mickey and Minnie, and it was released on June 20, 1941. The cartoon featured animation by Ward Kimball and Fred Moore, who did caricatures of themselves on stage, and they also provided the voices to their characters. This is a rare vintage cel that features both iconic characters together. Mickey was voiced in the cartoon by Walt Disney, and as a bonus, the overmat is boldly signed and inscribed, "To Dr. and Mrs. Hoffman with best wishes, Walt Disney." This is not the usual "studio signature," but an authentic signature by Mr. Disney himself. This cel is framed and the image area measures approximately 7" x 7". The cel image of Mickey, Minnie, and the car measures approximately 6" x 6.5". The trimmed cel has slipped out of the mat backing, but it can be easily replaced. There is some slight curling throughout the cel, as well as paint separation in Mickey's and Minnie's touching ears, the red car body, and the car's left headlight. Overall Very Good condition. What a piece of history -- with an adorable pose that captures the feeling that Mickey really does love Minnie!
