This site is meant to introduce my company, Cuckoo Comics & Collectibles and some of the animation art we handle. We are selling animation art and have specialized in vintage Disney animation art for more than 40 years. I am known by virtually every major collector and auction house for my knowledge, experience, and love of this art form. Many of the most famous (and pricey) pieces of vintage animation art and cartoon movie posters in existence are for sale and have been sold here, but many less expensive although still classic one of a kind pieces are also for sale.
Thanks, Rob Jaiven

This site is not designed to be a comprehensive approach to collecting Walt Disney animation cels and other animation art. Every beginning collector should be strongly encouraged to use as many sources of information (web sites, galleries, auctions, printed information) as possible in order to make themselves more aware and competent buyers. There is such an extensive array of animation art available, a wide range (and sometimes disparity) in prices, and a wide selection of dealers to purchase from, that great time and care should be taken when making these decisions. Please don’t take this research lightly – every collector finds the dealer they deserve.

Please feel free to e-mail me (or call  me at 954-816-8666) for further information about specific pieces for sale or just general information about the hobby. No recent cels, limited editions, or any other non-collectible commercial animation art. Just straight vintage animation art. This is Ames, Mister.
