Disney Little Mermaid Production Cel Featuring Ariel & Ursula (1989)
Original Walt Disney Pictures production cel from Disney's The Little Mermaid (1989). When the production of The Little Mermaid wrapped, everyone who worked on the show was allowed to choose a cel. 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. I wanted a cel from this scene because I love this musical moment. It's very important to the story, and Jodi Benson (Ariel) and Pat Carroll (Ursula) deliver the best performances in the movie with Broadway panache.
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. It deserves a better home, where it can be seen every day.
