    Wonderful World of Color "The Mickey Mouse 40th Anniversary Show" Group Production Held Cel (Walt Disney, 1968). This special episode of Wonderful World of Color was directed by Ward Kimball. This show, the 11th episode in Season 15, marked the last major voice work of Jimmy MacDonald of Mickey Mouse, before he retired and handed the mantle over to Wayne Allwine. In this show, held cel "snapshots" were shown in the celebration of Mickey's 40th birthday. This is an outstanding original hand-painted cel of Mickey with Minnie Mouse and the gang for the official show portrait pose. Included in the cel is Donald Duck, Pluto, Goofy, The Three Little Pigs, The Big Bad Wolf, Clara Cluck, and Pete. Notes on the cel say Minnie's lashes and pupils are inked! The group portrait takes up almost the entire cel. The hand-colored color model print of this is in another lot in this sale. This cel is, believe it or not, over 50 years old! This wonderful group portrait cel is matted with an opening of 13" x 10", with an overall mat size of 20" x 16". VERY rare! Minor handling wear. In Very Good condition.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
