    Description

    The Pointer Mickey Mouse and Pluto Production Cel and Courvoisier Background Setup (Walt Disney, 1939). The Pointer was a very important short, as it was the first time the public saw the new Fred Moore design of Mickey Mouse with pupils! Directed by Clyde Geronomi, this short was released on August 21st, 1939. The hand-inked, hand-painted cels of Mickey (standing 5.25" tall) and Pluto (4.75" tall) are both trimmed to the edges and placed on a hand-painted Courvoisier background. There is a production cel overlay of the foliage in the foreground of the image. The cels are from the opening of the short where Mickey is reading Pluto the book on how to be a pointer. The original cream-colored Courvoisier mat reads "From the Pointer" just under the image on the left. The Courvoisier paperwork is on the reverse. This was originally sold at "Harlow, Keppel, and Co, Inc." from information on the backside. Very slight rippling in the cel, otherwise in Fine condition.
