    The Brave Little Tailor Mickey Mouse Production Cel Courvoisier Setup (Walt Disney, 1938). "Did you kill seven with one blow?" asks the King. "Uh, yes your honor... and how!" says Mickey Mouse. Mickey thinks he's been asked about seven pesky flies, not seven GIANTS! This is an outstanding hand-inked, hand-painted production cel of Mickey Mouse when he is brought before the King. You can see this image at the 2:15 mark into the short. This is considered one of Mickey Mouse's greatest roles. The short was nominated for an Academy Award; Jerry Beck's great book, The 50 Greatest Cartoons, had this down as #26. It was directed by Bill Roberts and released on 9/23/38; Walt Disney provided the voice of Mickey Mouse. This an original Courvoisier production cel setup, with Mickey on a Courvoisier polka dot background. The cel is trimmed to image, with a size of 5". Framed with glass; matted with an opening size of 7" x 7". Light separation, tiny paint loss in shoulder and feather. Slight curl on right foot heal. Overall Good condition.
