    The Band Concert Mickey Mouse Production Cel (Walt Disney, 1935). Directed by Wilfred Jackson, this is the first full theatrical cartoon of Mickey Mouse produced in color. It is considered to be one of Mickey's greatest films. In Jerry Beck's book, The Fifty Greatest Cartoons, it's ranked #5, the highest ranking Disney animated theatrical short on the list. The impact and importance of this film lives on today as it is the theme of "Silly Symphony Swings" at Disney's California Adventure, which opened on May 28, 2010. This is a trimmed nitrate cel that showcases Mickey leading the band concert. It was originally purchased from a Disney employee in the 1980's and had minor restoration done at the time by Vintage Ink and Paint. It is trimmed to approximately 5" x 6.25", and is in Fine condition. A very important and attractive piece of Animation Art!
