    The Great Mouse Detective Professor Ratigan Production Cel/Color Model Setup with Master Painted Background (Walt Disney, 1986). "From the brain who brought you the 'Big Ben' caper... the head that made headlines in every newspaper!" Ratigan sings this in his big musical number, "The World's Greatest Criminal Mind!" This is one outstanding hand-painted 16 field production cel (or possibly Color Model) of this film's classic villain, Professor Ratigan. The character was inspired by "Professor Moriarty" from Sherlock Holmes and voiced by the late Vincent Price. This is a superb image measuring 8" x 6", on a 16 field Master hand-painted Great Mouse Detective production background. The background is marked 0238 006 SC 18.1 in the lower margin. This is one of the single finest background setups we have seen from this film. Overall background size is 16" x 12.5". Fine condition.
