    Orange Bird Production Cel and Animation Drawing (Walt Disney/Florida Citrus Commission, c. 1970). "Remember - a day without orange juice is like a day without sunshine..." Viewers who grew up during the early 1970s will surely remember the perky gospel-singing beauty queen Anita Bryant (before her more controversial days) as she jingled her way through her home, singing the myriad virtues of Florida orange juice to her family. Conceived as a joint partnership between the Florida Citrus Commission and Walt Disney World, the Orange Bird character "lived" at the Sunshine Tree Pavilion in Walt Disney World in Orlando. Plenty of tie-in merchandise featuring the cheerful little bird was produced during the character's run; though all long out-of-production, it remains popular and is highly sought-after to this day. Playhouse Pictures in Hollywood provided the animation for the memorable series of commercials. This hand-inked, hand-painted 12 field production cel features an adorable image of a chuckling little Orange Bird, standing at 3.5" high. A matching animation drawing is also included; character is rendered in graphite and colored pencil. Very unique piece of animation - and Florida - history! Drawing has light toning, minor edge wear and is in Very Good condition. Cel is in Fine condition.
