    Walt Disney Studios - Legend of Sleepy Hollow Ichabod Crane Cel Original Animation Art (Walt Disney, 1958). Washington Irving's classic story came to animated life in this wonderful film, originally presented as part of "The Adventures Of Ichabod and Mr. Toad," which was released in 1949. This cel shows Ichabod and his horse celebrating a lighthearted moment -- one of pure relief and laughter, no doubt after escaping from the Headless Horseman. Walt Disney's character design was a perfect embodiment of Washington Irving's timeless characters: the comical, flimsy movements of Ichabod Crane, the massive stature of Brom Bones, the beauty of Katrina Van Tassel, and most of all, the menacing and frightening figure of the Headless Horseman. For many, the eerie sound of the Horseman's haunting laugh has never been equalled. The image area of this cel is 9" x 9", and the art is in Excellent condition. The mood, spirit, and essence of Halloween were captured perfectly in this cartoon -- but don't be afraid to bid, it would be far more scary to miss out on this golden opportunity for a wonderful piece of Disney art.
