Collecting Disney

On the eve of one of the most spectacular Disney auctions of the later years, I want to make sure that you all are aware of it!

There are items of all eras of Disney's past, and the range of material is vast! Drawings, records, merchandize, you name it, it's there to bid on. Here are a few of my favorites: (click the images!)
Stalling Score
Original parts for the Minnie's Yoo Hoo trailer by Carl Stalling!

Stalling ScoreLayouts1
Original layouts for Mickey's Nightmare (1932)! Scenes animated by Hardie Gramatky (of Little Toot fame) and Harry Reeves under supervision by Ben Sharpsteen.

Stalling ScoreLayouts2
Original layouts for Mickey's Mellerdrammer (1933)! Animated, again under Sharpsteen's supervision, by Jack Kinney (later director) and George Drake (later supervisor of the trainees).

One of the most spectacular lots is this:
A set of original KEM Weber furniture from the Burbank studio, designed around 1938-39!

The auction starts tomorrow, Saturday June 18, 2016 at 11 am!
You can see the info and browse the amazing catalog here!

At last a moment to do something I wanted to do! Not that I did not enjoy the Disney cruise over the Atlantic, I REALLY did very much! But I would rather not have needed the emergency eye operation in London. All is well now, but it took a few weeks to recover. I am back at work, editing our next feature film! I hope to get more time to update my blog: there are a few promises I need to make good on!
