Tuesday Night Roundup

From Wonderful World of Animation Art
Mickey from Mickey's Kangaroo Master Set-Up
Sold: $19,500

From the last black and white Mickey Mouse cartoon. As mentioned with the Santa's Workshop cel below, it is rare to see something this old in such great condition. Add in the original background and the Walt Disney signature and it's easy to see why it was snapped up so fast.

Figaro from Pinocchio
Sale price: $2,400

Sure, Figaro's eyes are closed - he's sleeping. But this is a really adorable cel. Figaro is one of my favorite characters and Pinocchio is one of the very finest Disney films. The price seems pretty standard for a gallery.

From ebay:
Owl from Bambi
Sold: $738.00

Interesting cel from one of Disney's golden era films. Perhaps a little below market price but pretty close.

Today's spotlight

From ebay:
Sleeping Beauty Production Cel
Current bid: $1,300
End Date: May 5

A great cel from one of the most sought after scenes in SLEEPING BEAUTY. Slightly odd pose of the animals and everyone's eyes are closed but still a magical image.

From ebay:
Marie from the Aristocats
Sold: $229.29

Not perfect condition but just about the ideal pose for this character. Marie is quickly becoming a cult Disney favorite thanks to some sly marketing from the company. Pretty good buy.

From Wonderful World Art Gallery

Selling price: $3,500
Tramp, Scamp and Lady

Interesting set-up of three popular characters. Asking price seems a little high and the cels appear in different scenes in the film. Still, great to see some nice poses from this film (though Tramp oddly evil).

What We're Watching Today

From ebay:
Hen Wen from The Black Cauldron
Disney production cel
Sold: $23.05

Lesser character from a lesser movie. But still, less than $25 for a Disney production cel is a good buy.

From ebay:
Snow White from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
Disney Courvoisier cel
Current bid: $1,773.00
End date: May 4

Beautiful Snow White pose. Expect this to shoot up hundreds of dollars in the last few hours of the auction.

From ebay:
Santa from Santa's Workshop (1932)
Disney Production cel with original master background?
Current bid: $3,650.00

If this is what it appears to be, it is a RARE find. Several original cels on a Master Background from one of the earliest color cartoons ever created by Disney. Amazing! Obviously some people have caught on to its basic value but at a regular auction, this would likely go above $10,000. At a gallery, $20,000.
