    The Boat Builders Goofy Production Background with Presentation Cel (Walt Disney, 1938). An original hand-painted production background, gouache on illustration board, from the theatrical short directed by Ben Sharpsteen. Placed over this background is a newly created hand-inked and hand-painted cel of Goofy, created by the Walt Disney Studio's Ink and Paint Department from the original 1938 archived animation drawings. This is a 1/1 cel placed over a vintage background for presentation purposes, with the image of Goofy measuring 6.5". Framed to 28" x 21", with an image area of 15" x 9". The original 1938 background paperwork and cel paperwork are mounted on the reverse. The cel bears the Disney studio seal. The paint is perfect.
