Original Walt Disney Production Cels on Courvoisier Background from Fantasia
The Sorcerer's Apprentice is the third and most famous segment in Disney's Fantasia and went on to be the only returning segment in its sequel, Fantasia 2000.
The scene begins with the sorcerer practicing his magic while Mickey fulfills his chores of carrying buckets of water back and forth. Later when the sorcerer goes to sleep, Mickey dons the wizard’s hat. He enchants a broom with arms and legs so it can carry the buckets of water for him.
Even before Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs premiered, Walt Disney was playing with the idea of creating an animated short set to Paul Dukas's 1897 scherzo. Mickey’s role was originally intended for Dopey, but Disney decided Mickey needed a reboot. The Mouse got a complete redesign to become both cuter and more expressive.
"For sentimental reasons, I think Mickey Mouse in The Sorcerer's Apprentice is my favorite. He made me what I am today.”-Walt Disney

Original Walt Disney Production Cel Set Up on Watercolor Production Background
We are pleased to offer a production cel set up applied to a watercolor production background from Walt Disney’s Alice in Wonderland. In this scene, the Queen of Hearts meets Alice and asks her if she knows how to play croquette. The Queen raises up the flamingo while Alice and The King of Hearts anticipate her next moves.
The Queen of Hearts is a tyrannical and deranged ruler who is quick to anger and behead the citizens of Wonderland. She is also shown to be a rather childish character, even in the face of Alice, as she is incredibly impatient, irrationally sensitive, prone to temper tantrums and rather egotistical.
This scene also comes with fun fan theories. When the White Rabbit introduces the King of Hearts (after introducing the Queen of Hearts), a high-pitched voice can be heard cheering "Hooray!" Many people believe that Mickey Mouse is the one who is cheering.
Alice in Wonderland was originally not well received by audiences, but is now thought of as ahead of its time. It has become regarded as one of Disney’s greatest animated classics and is the biggest cult classic in animation. Own a piece of animation history today! $7,000 unframed
Original Walt Disney Production Cel on Courvoisier background featuring The Queen
We are pleased to offer an original production cel on woodwork Courvoisier background featuring the original disney villain, the Wicked Queen. This beloved character from Walt Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs has one of the strongest legacies of the studio and continues to influence such Disney villains of Ursula, Maleficent, and Scar. Critics have even credited her with influence on villains from Star Wars. The Queen ranked as tenth in the American Film Institute's 2003 list of the 50 Best Movie Villains of All Time, being the highest-ranked animated villain.
As the most complex character in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the Queen turned out to be especially challenging for the animators. The sequence of her transformation in particular was the film's toughest to create using trick effects, especially since Disney insisted on showing how the Queen felt as she changed.
In the scene, The Queen holds the iconic heart box as she asks the magic mirror once again if she is the fairest in the land. The magic mirror informs her that she has been tricked and Snow White is still alive. In anger, she throws the box down and runs into her layer to magically transform herself into The Witch. $11,000 framed
Original Walt Disney Production Cel on Courvoisier Background featuring Figaro
We are pleased to offer an original Walt Disney production cel from Pinocchio featuring Figaro. The feisty little cat is a beloved character animated by Eric Larson. Basing the kitten's childlike personality on that of his own nephew, Larson combined this human mind with the natural movements of a cat.
In this scene, Geppetto and Figaro are snuggling into bed. Geppetto says “wouldn’t be nice if he were a real boy? Oh well, c’mon, we’ll go to sleep.” Figaro wiggles down into bed and falls asleep. Seconds later, Geppetto says “aw, Figaro.” Figaro wakes up with a jolt, crosses his arms and furrows his brow. “I forgot to open the window.” Figaro angrily kicks off his blanket and climbs up to the window. White light glows into the room and Geppetto sees the wishing star. He says the famous lines “I wish I may, I wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight.”
Figaro has also starred independently in a number of Disney shorts, as the pet of Minnie Mouse alongside Pluto. After theses shorts he took a 50th hiatus from Disney cartoons, but remains a favorite classic character for his role in Pinocchio. Own a piece of animation history today! $2,500 framed
