Animation Cels & Key Background of Pinocchio on Stage

Pinocchio 1940 Disney Studios

After the villain Stromboli kidnaps Pinocchio he has Pinocchio perform on the puppet stage with other puppets. This is a key set-up of the first establishing shot of the sequence of Pinocchio on stage. Key means that the production cels and the production background are matching, and the image in the film appears exactly like this. Key (matching) set-ups are the most desired and hard to find examples of vintage animation art. This particular set-up one the the most spectacular pieces from Pinocchio ever seen.

In September 1937, during the production of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, animator Norman Ferguson brought a translated version of Carlo Collodi's 1883 Italian children's novel, The Adventures of Pinocchio to the attention of Walt Disney. After reading the book "Walt was busting his guts with enthusiasm" as Ferguson said. Pinocchio was intended to be the studio's third film, after Bambi. However, Bambi proved to be a challenging film to adapt, so Pinocchio was moved ahead in production while Bambi was put on hold.
