    Robin Hood Little John Production Cel and Master Painted Background (Walt Disney, 1973). "ROBBED! I've been robbed. Hiss, you're never around when I need you!" cries Prince John. Outrageous original hand-painted 16 field production cel of Little John "in drag," grabbing a bag of money. This is from the scene where Prince John's carriage is robbed by Robin Hood, who is dressed up as a Gypsy, and by Little John in disguise as a woman. The cel is on a Master hand-painted production background, marked Sc43 in the bottom border area. The original line test cel over the background is included. Nice fun large image of 7" showcasing Little John. As a bonus an overlay top cel has been signed by directing animators from this film, Disney Legend Inductees Frank Thomas (1912 - 2004) and Ollie Johnston (1912 - 2008), as well as a writer on this film (and also a Disney Legend Inductee), Ken Anderson (1909 - 1993). This is a rare Master setup! Matted with an opening of 11.75" x 9.5", and an overall size of 17" x 15". Fine condition.
