    The Academy Awards Mickey Mouse & Donald Duck Production Cel (Walt Disney, 1988). "And the award goes to..." In 1988, as part of his continuing year-long 60th birthday celebration, Mickey Mouse appeared on screen at the Academy Award ceremonies to present the Oscar for Best Animated Short to The Man Who Planted Trees. At the end of the clip, an animated Mickey dressed as the Sorcerer's Apprentice stepped off the screen and onto the stage where he was joined by Donald Duck, who thought he was going to be the co-presenter. Disney animator Mark Henn worked on this sequence. This is a rare chance to get Mickey as the Sorcerer's Apprentice in a production cel created by Disney Feature Animation and it is the very last time that Mickey and Donald were animated using hand-painted cels. The pair of characters are exceptional in both pose and size with an overall image measuring 6" x 9". The cel is framed under glass with a mat opening of 9.5" x 13" and a frame measuring 16.75" x 20.25". The last studio produced hand-painted cel of Mickey in one of his most iconic roles and alongside his most iconic partner is a true piece of animation history. Condition is Fine. Frame is sold as-is.
