Help me figure out what I have
I have owned this for a very long time. I bought it during a trip to Disneyland as a teenager in 1967.
Here is the deal. I found this bin of animation cells in a store inside the magic kingdom. They had 'genuine' cells with real backgrounds for the princely sum of $40/ea. Lots of money in 1967. This bin was buried in a corner and had a variety of cells of various Disney characters. Every one was a bit different in pose, and some were missing body parts e.g. Micky might be missing an arm. The clerk said they were original drawings, but they were marked as repros because they were on generic backgrounds instead of the film background. The back is marked as an authorized reproduction though. Anyway, I rifled through the box and picked out one that I thought was especially attractive. I apid $5, which was a big chunk of a teen trinket budget back in 1967. The cell has been on some sort of display ever since. I had it in my dorm in the air force and college. It has been displayed in all three of my kids bedrooms.
Means a lot to me, and I am not thinking of selling. I'm sure my kids will want this after I am gone. But I am curious to hear others opinions on what I have. Do you think original art on generic background, or is it just cheap commercial reproduction?
