    The Lion King Timon and Pumba Signed Limited Edition Cel 31/50 (Walt Disney, 1994). One of the most successful animated films of all time, The Lion King spawned a sequel, a prequel, a TV series, and a Tony Award-winning Broadway adaptation. There were no hand-painted production cels for this film, however. Disney rewarded the people who worked on it with a series of cels that were hand-painted by the Disney Ink and Paint Department. These cels were numbered and only available to Feature Animation employees. This outstanding hand-painted cel of Timon and Pumba is based on Sequence 18B, Scene 33.5, in which Pumba dons a Hawaiian skirt and draws the attention of the Hyenas. Pumba measures 9" x 6", and Timon is 3", and the cel is placed over a photographic background. It is #31 of only 50 produced, and has the original Disney seal and a certificate of authenticity. What makes this one special it is hand-signed by the animators who worked on these characters, Brian Ferguson and David Pruiksma. (These cels were originally unsigned, making this a rare treat!). An extremely rare and desirable item, in Fine condition.
