    The Silly Symphony Railroad Postage Stamp Painted Pan Background (Walt Disney, c. 1990s). This extra-long hand-painted animation-style background was created as part of the Disney Stamp Program. This piece was the backdrop for a commemorative sheet of stamps issued for Grenada, called "The Silly Symphony Railroad: Santa's Philatelic Christmas Train." There were five perforated stamps on the sheet, depicting various Disney characters like Elmer Elephant, the Big Bad Wolf, Little Hiawatha, and other Silly Symphony stars riding on train cars (this art is not included in this lot, but we have included a color print-out of the stamp sheet). The art is in airbrushed gouache/watercolor on illustration board, with an image size of 37.5" x 12.75". It would make a great background as a winter scene for any number of animation cels. As an added bonus, a preliminary graphite and ink drawing on velum paper is included. Very Good overall condition.
