    Walt Disney Productions Celebrates 50 Happy Years Limited Edition Art Print Printer's Proof Signed by Bill Justice (Walt Disney, c. 1990s).
    This 1973 painting by Bill Justice (1914 - 2011) featuring Disney animated characters marking the 50th anniversary of the founding of Walt Disney Productions was developed into a mural at The Walt Disney Store in the Magic Kingdom of Walt Disney World. This is a print produced by The Disney Gallery of that painting, and it is hand-signed by Bill Justice at lower right. This huge 40" x 16" print was limited to just 1,200 copies, and sold exclusively to Disney Cast Members (employees). This copy is an extremely rare Printer's Proof.
    Bill Justice joined the Walt Disney Studio in 1937 as an in-betweener on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and by 1940 became an animator working on the "Pastoral Symphony" segment of Fantasia. He animated on shorts and features throughout the 1940s and 1950s, and from 1947 through the mid-1950s was the lead animator of Chip and Dale. He directed five of the studio's innovative cartoons released from 1956 to 1962 and was one of the specialists who produced the amazing stop-motion animation seen in Babes in Toyland (1961) and Mary Poppins (1964). In 1965 he joined WED Enterprises, later Walt Disney Imagineering, as a designer of attractions, parades, and other projects for the Disney theme parks. He retired in 1979 and was named a Disney Legend in 1996. In 2005 he received a window on Main Street, Disneyland, for his contributions to the Park. The print is in Fine condition.
