    The Little Mermaid Flounder and Ariel Production Cel with Key Master Background Layout Drawing (Walt Disney, 1989). "I don't see how a world that makes such wonderful things could be bad" asks Ariel. "Look at this stuff, isn't it neat? Wouldn't you think my collection's complete?" Ariel then goes right into the "Part of Your World" song sequence. This is an original hand-painted 16 field production cel of Ariel and Flounder from this scene, with full-figure images measuring 2" and 7". Great image of Ariel with her full tail! The cel is on its Key Master hand-drawn background layout drawing, done by the film's layout artist, Bill Perkins. It is labeled in the bottom border with sequence and scene notes. Art is in blue pencil, with white paint and red pencil highlights on the candelabra. This is one of the only setups of production cel with a Key Master background layout drawing we have ever seen. The detail to the drawing is amazing! The cel has a Disney seal. Both production cel and background drawing are in a Plexiglas-front frame measuring 22" x 18" with a mat opening of 14" x 10". A print of the actual screen grab is included on back of the frame. This is something special! Frame is sold as-is, cel and drawing condition is Very Good.
