Original Walt Disney Production Cel on Courvoisier Background featuring Doc from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
Based on the German fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm, Walt Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was the first full-length cel animated feature film produced in full color. Development on the Snow White story began in 1934; for Walt Disney, the main attraction of the story was the Seven Dwarfs. In the original Grimm tale, the dwarfs are nameless; under Disney, however, each dwarf received his own name and unique personality. Potential names for the dwarfs were chosen from a pool of about fifty names, and the final seven were selected through a process of elimination. It was originally thought that the dwarfs would be the main focus of the animated film, and several sequences were written for the characters. It wasn’t until later in the development process that it was decided that the relationship between Snow White and the Evil Queen would be the main focus of the story, and many of the original sequences featuring the dwarfs were cut. However, some of the film’s most iconic moments, such as the song sequence “Heigh-ho” involve the Seven Dwarfs. This original Walt Disney production cel on Courvoisier background features Doc, the leader of the Seven Dwarfs who often mixed up his words. Doc was voiced by Roy Atwell, a Broadway actor and comedian. Disney critics warned that audiences, especially adults, would not want to sit through a full-length cartoon about a princess and dwarfs; however, the film became an instant success following its 1937 release. Today, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is a classic film, and it's production cels are important works of art and rare pieces of animation history. $3,000 framed
Original Walt Disney Production Cel on Courvoisier Background featuring Mickey Mouse as the Sorcerer's Apprentice
This original Walt Disney production cel on Courvoisier background from Fantasia features Mickey Mouse as the Sorcerer's Apprentice. Realeased in 1941, Fantasia was Walt Disney's third full-length feature film. The film was originally intended as a short featuring Mickey Mouse as the Sorcerer's Apprentice, based on the symphonic poem written by French composer Paul Dukas in 1896. Disney partnered with legendary conductor Leopold Stokowski and the Philadelphia Philharmonic Orchesta to record the music. Realizing that it was a perfect way to reintroduce to the public to classical music, Disney decided to expand the project to include more animated shorts interpreting classical compositions. Selections included Toccata and Fugue in D minor, the Nutcraker Suite, Right of Spring, The Pastoral Symphony, Dance of the Hours, Night on Bald Mountain, and Ave Maria. In the Sorcerer's Apprentice segment of the film, Mickey Mouse attempts to perform some of his master's magic tricks, only to realize he doesn't know how to control them. Although Fantasia was not an instant success when it was first released, it is now an iconic Disney film. In 2000, the sequal Fantasia 2000 was released, which featured seven new animated shorts set to classical music. This prodcution cel on Courvoisier background measures 16 1/2" x 15" framed and is one of a kind. $15,000 framed
