    Pinocchio Production Cel with Custom Painted Background (Walt Disney, 1940). "Prove yourself brave, truthful and unselfish... and someday you will be a real boy. Awake, Pinocchio, awake" says the Blue Fairy, in this film's unforgettable finale. This is an original hand-inked hand-painted production cel of Pinocchio (with his donkey ears and tail), seconds before he awakens as a real boy. This cel is on screen for almost six seconds as the Blue Fairy speaks and turns him into a real boy. Great dramatic full figure image, measuring 5". The cel is on a custom hand-painted presentation background done by the late Toby Bluth. Framed using Plexiglas and matted with an opening size of 10" x 9"; overall frame size is 21" x 16". Fine condition.
