    Description

    The Great Mouse Detective Ratigan and Widget Production Cel (Walt Disney, 1986). Based on the children's book series Basil of Baker Street by Eve Titus, this film draws heavily on the tradition of Sherlock Holmes with a heroic mouse who consciously emulates the detective. This film received positive reviews and financial success, in sharp contrast to the box office under-performance of Disney's previous animated feature film The Black Cauldron. As a result, the company became convinced that their animation department was still a viable enterprise which set the stage for the Disney Renaissance. This is an original hand-painted 16 field production cel of arch villain Ratigan and his batty henchman Fidget. The overall image measures an incredible 10" x 11.5" and there is a Disney seal in the lower left. Cels of this era were laminated by the studio to help preserve them. Very light handling and condition is Fine.
