The Tigger Movie Presentation Cel with Key Master Background and Drawing Walt Disney, 2000

The Tigger Movie Presentation Cel with Key Master Background and Drawing (Walt Disney, 2000). "The wonderful thing about tiggers, is Tiggers are wonderful things ... Their tops are made of rubber, their bottoms are made of springs. They're bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy fun, fun, fun, fun, fun... But the most wonderful thing about tiggers is I'm the only one!" These lyrics from The Tigger Movie were written by the Sherman Brothers, the longtime Disney songwriting team who are well known for their contributions to Disney films like Mary Poppins and The Jungle Book. The film was originally slated for direct-to-video release until then-Disney CEO Michael Eisner heard the Sherman Brothers' score and decided to release the film in theaters worldwide on 2/11/00. The film tells the story of Tigger who gleefully bounces around the Hundred Acre Wood, disrupting his friends as they prepare for winter. When Tigger accidentally causes a large rock to land on Eeyore's house, he activates his most powerful bounce, the Whoopty-Dooper-Loopty-Looper-Alley-Ooper bounce. In this lot we have a "tiggerific" presentation cel on a Key Master background featuring Tigger, the boisterous and exuberant friend of Winnie the Pooh. The matching animation drawing is included in this lot. The cel is hand-painted on 16 field acetate. The background is hand-painted on background board which is noted as "Original Production Background by Walt Disney Animation." The drawing was rendered in graphite on 16 field animation paper. Both pieces bear the seal of Walt Disney Animation. The cel is signed by two of 'Walt's Nine Old Men," Ollie Johnston (1912 - 2008) and Frank Thomas (1912 - 2004). A Certificate of Authenticity issued by Disney is included. The artwork is in a frame measuring 40" x 19" which has a placard that reads, "Tigger Original Production Drawing, Original Production Background, The Tigger Movie 2000." The frame is sold as-is. Fine condition. From the MacLaughlin Family Disney Collection.
