  • Original Walt Disney production cel from Peter Pan featuring John

    We are pleased to offer an original Walt Disney production cel from Peter Pan featuring John.

    Walt Disney originally planned on creating a Peter Pan animated feature immediately after Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. In the 1930s, the studio began working on the character designs and story development. However, he did not receive the rights to the story until four years later.

    Author J.M. Barrie famously left the rights to Peter Pan to the Great Ormond Street Hospital when he died. The hospital made a deal with Disney in 1939, giving them the exclusive animation rights. It doesn’t receive income from the sales of DVDs or toys though, because those things weren’t in the 1939 contract. However, according to the hospital’s website, Disney has been very supportive nonetheless. “Since 2008, when Disney partnered with Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity, they have raised more than £10 million [$14.5 million] towards the hospital's vital redevelopment program and continue to support the hospital and charity with fundraising events and donations.”

    Peter Pan was finally completed and released in 1953. At the time of the film’s debut The Hollywood Reporter said “It is doubtful if the wistful fantasy has ever been done with such charm and beauty as fills the Walt Disney version of James M. Barrie's fanciful play.” Own a piece of animation history today! $795 framed.

  • Original Walt Disney Production Cel Featuring Prince Charming

    We are pleased to offer an original Walt Disney Production Cel from featuring Prince Charming. 

    Following in the footsteps of Snow White and the Seven Dwarf’s “The Prince," Prince Charming’s name is never revealed. He is also never actually referred to as "Prince Charming" in the film. It is not until Prince Phillip in Sleeping Beauty does a Disney prince have an official name. 

    Name or no name, Prince Charming is the first Disney prince to have a fun rebellious streak. The King is frustrated that his son has yet to find a wife and laments that he misses the sounds of children running around the castle. He is determined to figure out a way to get his son to give him some grandchildren. He then comes up with the idea to throw a welcome ball and invite every eligible maiden in the kingdom, hoping that his son will fall in love with one.

    In this original production cel, Prince Charming is raising his hand to yawn, unimpressed by the maidens he has met from the kingdom. His attitude remains the same until he sees Cinderella wandering around the ballroom that he is moved to go meet her.

  • Original Walt Disney Production Cel from The Aristocats featuring Duchess

    We are pleased to offer an  original Walt Disney Production Cel from The Aristocats featuring Duchess. Originally slated to be a two-part live-action series on The Wonderful World of Disney, Walt himself decided it was a story better told with animation. It also would have been a task to keep the kittens MarieBerlioz, and Toulouse in place while filming!

    The Aristocats featured a star-studded cast of Disney favorites. Eva Gabor was the speaking voice for Duchess while the singing vocals were performed by Robie Lester, who also sang for Gabor’s Bianca in The Rescuers. Disney Legend Phil Harris is the man behind the voice of Thomas O’Malley and Baloo in The Jungle Book. The film also included famed voice actor Sterling Holloway, known for being the original voice of Winnie the Pooh, as Roquefort.

    Sadly, Disney died before he could see it through. As such, it’s the last movie to end with the line, “A Walt Disney Production.” Though some critics thought the loss of Walt’s direction hurt the movie, The New York Times raved about it, saying, “Bless the Walt Disney organization for The Aristocats, as funny, warm and sweet an animated, cartoon, package as ever gave a movie marquee a Christmas glow.”

  • Original Walt Disney Production Cel from 101 Dalmatians featuring Lucky

    We are pleased to offer an  original Walt Disney Production Cel on color copy background from One Hundred and One Dalmatians featuring Lucky.

    One Hundred and One Dalmations broke the rules. It has just a single song, for instance, and uses experimental animation that gave the film a more sketched appearance. Still, the essential elements are all in place: talking animals, an evil witch (albeit a contemporary one), detailed supporting characters and the family unit triumphing over adversity. 

    Ralph Novak of People wrote "What it lacks in romantic extravagance and plush spectacle, this 1961 Disney film makes up for in quiet charm and subtlety. In fact, if any movie with dogs, cats and horses who talk can be said to belong in the realm of realistic drama, this is it.”

    Speaking of talking dogs, if you look closely during the Twilight Bark scene, you’ll spot a few canines from Lady and the Tramp: Jock, Peg, Bull, Lady, and the Tramp (in silhouette). In this scene, we see the puppy Lucky. Even though Perdita gave birth to 15 puppies, the only names noted in the film were Lucky, Rolly, Patch, Penny, Pepper, and Freckles.
