    The Flying Mouse Butterfly Fairy Production Cel (Walt Disney, 1934). Here's an extremely rare piece of Disney history. This Dave Hand-directed Silly Symphony short, released on September 14, 1934, was about a young mouse that wanted wings so he could fly like the birds. When he rescues a butterfly from a spider's web, the butterfly turns into a beautiful Fairy who grants his wish -- in the form of bat wings! Here's an original hand-inked and painted production cel on a full nitrate sheet of the Fairy. This may well be one of the first Disney fairies to appear on screen, not to mention the earliest known Disney Fairy cel! Talk about pixie dust! Wow! The Fairy is a stunning 9" tall, with #70 written in the lower right corner. This is from the pivotal scene where she grants the little mouse's wish. Slight paint loss in the bottom wing, and a small chip out from the Fairy's hair, but considering the vintage, in Very Good condition.
