HORN DUCK PRODUCTION CEL WALT DISNEY STUDIOS GOUACHE ON CEL, 1951. Original hand inked and hand painted production animation cel of a Horn Duck from "Alice In Wonderland, " 1951, Walt Disney Studios; Set on a lithographic background; Unframed. I don't remember this.Now let me see, Oh! "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" (commonly shortened to "Alice in Wonderland"), is a 1865 novel written by English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson who wrote under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll. Disney reworked the story to fit with both a younger audience and a time frame suitable for an animated film (it's run time is only 75 minutes). Kathryn Beaumont, who was born in London England, was just 10 years old when she was chosen for the voice of Alice. Walt Disney personally cast Beaumont after seeing her in the film "On an Island with You, " in which the child actress had a small role. Disney was so impressed by her that she was also chosen to be the model for Alice, and would also go on to provide the voice for Wendy in "Peter Pan, " 1953. Beaumont has also reprised her voice acting role as Alice in two episodes of the animated series, Disney's "House of Mouse, " and as both Alice and Wendy in the video game Kingdom Hearts. She did not retire as the voice of Alice and Wendy until 2005, when her role for these two characters was taken over by Hynden Walch.
After Alice leaves the Mad Hatter's tea party and while chasing to catch up to the White Rabbit, she wanders into a dark and winding forest named Tulgey Wood. The woods are filled with many weird and bizarre creatures including Mome Raths, the Cheshire Cat, Hammer and Pencil Birds, a Broom-Headed Dog, and a group of Horn Ducks. This is a very rare and wonderful original production cel of the largest of the Horn Ducks. This is a fantastic full figure image that is eyes wide open, with a purple and pink body, a golden horn forming the head and mouth, and webbed feet. A rare and wonderful addition to any vintage Walt Disney animation collection!Measurements: Size - Horn Duck: 5 3/4 x 4 1/4", Image 8 3/4 x 11".
