    The Country Mouse Abner and the Cat Production Cel Setup (Walt Disney, 1936). Abner Countrymouse is invited to join his cousin, Monty Citymouse in the big city. Monty takes him up to a loaded dining room table for a feast, but poor Country Cousin Abner gets drunk while sipping poured champagne. After he lands on the floor, he spies the cat, kicking his behind. This rare hand-inked, hand-painted full 12 field 5-peghole production cel is what happens next! This is a 2-cel setup, which can be seen around the 7:50 mark. Great images, with sizes of 4" and 8". Rare to see untrimmed nitrate production cels from this era. This short was directed by Wilfred Jackson and released on 10/31/36. It went on to win the Academy Award. This cel comes from the Estate of Children's Book illustrator John Gee (Timbertoes), who worked at Walt Disney Studio for a short time in the 1930s. Cel is taped to red backing paper. Tape in all four corners. Abner has paint loss in his torso and umbrella. Overall for this era, Good condition.
