    The Jungle Book Mowgli and Baloo Production Cel on Key Master Production Background (Walt Disney, 1967). "Look for the bare necessities, those simple bare necessities, forget about your worries and your strife!" It looks like that's exactly what Mowgli is doing in this original, hand-painted production cel of Mowgli and Baloo. Baloo was voiced by Phil Harris and Mowgli was voiced by Bruce Reitherman, son of the director, Woolie Reitherman. The full figure images of the film's two main characters stand approximately 5" and 7" tall. The cel is on its original Disney Studio hand-painted, Key Master production background making this setup one-of-a-kind. It is one of the single most impressive production pieces from this movie that we have ever come across. Backgrounds in this film were painted by Bill Layne, Art Riley, Ralph Hulett, Thelma Witmer, Frank Armitage, and Al Dempster. The setup is framed with a mat opening of 11" x 15", in an overall frame of 20.5" x 23.5" Condition is Fine.
