    Description

    The Three Little Wolves Production Cel Setup with Master Background (Walt Disney, 1936). This original nitrate cel setup is from the third of four Three Little Pigs shorts, and introduces the Three Little Wolves. This is an amazing hand-inked and painted cel with the "Wolf Pacifier" contraption built by Practical Pig seen here disguised as a fruit and vegetable salesman, with the Wolf on the second cel. The cels are placed over a Master background from the same cartoon, which can be seen about 1:51 into the film. Paint on both nitrate cels in Fine; the cels themselves are slightly brittle, with edge pieces chipping off (away from the images). The cels and background are slightly trimmed to 9" x 12". An incredible setup from the Dave Hand-directed cartoon, with animation by Fred Moore, Eric Larson, and Norm Ferguson, and background painted by Mique Nelson. Matted to an overall size of 16" x 14".
