Animation Cel Mickey Mouse as Sorcerer's Apprentice

Fantasia 1940 Disney Studios

This Courvoisier Galleries piece is one of the most desired animation cel images from Walt Disney's Fantasia. Mickey is at his pinnacle on the mountaintop conducting the heavens. There is a nice provenance in that it was sold in the November 18, 1999 Film Art and Entertainment Auction at Christie's in Los Angeles. The total price was $39,600. There is a small split in the celluloid at Mickey's feet. It has been there and totally stable since that 1999 auction as described in the Christie's auction catalog.

After Mickey Mouse, the Sorcerer's Apprentice, has donned the Wizard Yen-Sid's tall, pointed, magical hat, and commanded the broom to do his work for him, he sits back in the Wizard's chair, orchestrating the movements of the broom, while watching it tirelessly fetch and tote water buckets. He soon falls asleep and dreams of power. He has reached greater heights above the earth on a high mountaintop in space, and he pictures himself controlling the paths of clouds, stars, planets, and comets in the sky. Even the waves of the ocean and lightning bolts obey him.
