Original Walt Disney Pictures production cel from Disney's Cranium Command (1989). When the production of Cranium Command wrapped, everyone who worked on the show was allowed to choose a cel.This one was selected for me by animation director Gary (Beauty and the Beast) Trousdale. I wanted to make sure I had a preferred "extreme" drawing, which is the drawing executed by the animator himself, and not his assistants, who make the "in-betweens" and "clean up" the drawings before they are transferred to acetate cels and painted by hand in the Ink and Paint department.
Sophisticated collectors know the difference. Disney is not making animated movies by hand anymore, so there won't be any more production cels.This is the last of its kind: drawn, traced, inked by hand, and painstakingly photographed one frame at a time. More about this incredible mix of animation, live action and animatronics. The live action was directed by Jerry (Marrying Man) Rees. Here's Cranium Command on YouTube. The general's chicken choking moment comes at 14:28.
The piece is professionally framed, measuring 19x16 inches. The actual cel is 8 1/2 x 11 inches and includes the registration pins. If you would like, I will write and have notarized the story of this amazing piece of original animation art. I hate to sell this piece, but we're downsizing, and everything must go.
