Lot 1108: (Walt Disney Studios, 1949 and 1995) One-of-a-kind hand-painted cel and original keymaster production background featuring Mr. Toad, Cyril, and the motorcar from Ichabod and Mr. Toad, showing the toad being taken over by 'motor mania' as the vehicle passes by. This cel was produced at Disney Studios in 1995 and placed over the original 1949 hand-painted keymaster production pan background from the 'Wind and the Willows' segment of Ichabod and Mr. Toad. Cel images measure 5 x 8.5, 2 x 3, and 6 x 10, with a mat opening of 17.5 x 10.5. This piece is also framed to an overall size of 30.5 x 23. The cel has the Walt Disney Company seal to lower right. In fine condition. Disney created this as a special item to be sold at the Disney gallery as part of the 1995 Disneyana Convention; the background was pulled from the Disney archives for this occasion, and a matching cel was created for it from the original drawings in the archives. This is an extremely rare practice for Disney—since that time they have not again sold a vintage pan background from their archives. Oversized.
