    The Little Mermaid Ursula, Ariel, and Flounder Production Cel Setup and Key Master Background (Walt Disney, 1989). This is the film whose legacy has grown to include a sequel, a TV series, two theatrical re-releases (one in 3-D), a Blu-ray release, and a major presence at the Disney Theme Parks. This was also the final Walt Disney Studios animated feature film to use hand-painted production cels. This is something special, from a key scene in the movie: a 16 field 5 cel setup of Ursula the Sea Witch spying on Ariel and Flounder, placed over its hand-painted Key Master production background (Seq. 1.2/Sc 7.1). Ursula measures 4.5" x 5.5", Ariel is 2", and Flounder .5". Great hand-painted special effect bubbles compliment this cel. Background setups from this film are almost impossible to find. In Fine condition.
