In the early 1920s, while working at an advertising agency in Kansas City, Missouri, Walt Disney became convinced of the potential for cel animation and formed the Laugh-O-Gram Studio with such notable individuals as Ub Iwerks, Hugh Harman, and Rudolf Ising. After producing a series of commercials, the studio created “Alice’s Wonderland”, a short film that combined animation and live action footage. However, Walt could not find a distributor and the studio went bankrupt. Soon, Walt moved to Hollywood, and in 1923, he and his brother Roy created the Disney Brothers Studio, which would eventually become The Walt Disney Company. A contractual dispute in 1928 caused Walt to lose his popular character, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. Out of an immediate need for a new cartoon star, Walt, with his close friend and animator Ub Iwerks, created Mickey Mouse. Much like the beginnings of “Alice’s Wonderland”, the first two Mickey Mouse cartoons, “Plane Crazy” and “The Gallopin’ Gaucho”, also failed to find a distributor. It was the studio’s innovative addition of synchronized sound to animation which finally earned them a distribution deal for their third Mickey Mouse cartoon, “Steamboat Willie”. After that, Mickey surged in popularity and The Walt Disney Studios began to change the history of animation forever. 1. Walt Disney Hyperion Studios Publicity Photo.

Measuring 8”x10”, the photo is in good condition with some creases around the edges and some discoloration to the reverse. $100-$200

Theater manager Harry Woodin observed the success of the Mickey Mouse cartoons, and theorized that a character-sponsored club based on Mickey Mouse could build upon Mickey’s popularity and bring in more patrons to his Fox Dome Theatre in Ocean Park, California. Walt Disney was impressed by Woodin’s proposal, and in fall of 1929, the first Mickey Mouse Club was born. The clubs provided an affordable and easy way for children to see the newest Mickey Mouse cartoons and encouraged them to learn good citizenship through patriotic and character-building activities. Additionally, local businesses could sponsor the club, offering small gifts and rewards to club members in exchange for advertising opportunities. Within months, hundreds of Mickey Mouse Clubs popped up across the United States, and by 1932 there were over 800 Mickey Mouse Clubs worldwide with over one million members.

The Art of The Walt Disney Studios & Disneyland

It was composer Carl Stalling who first pitched Walt on the idea to combine animation and musical scores to tell his stories. Stalling’s idea of skeletons dancing in a graveyard provided the groundwork for what would turn into “The Skeleton Dance”, the first of the award-winning Silly Symphony series. The Silly Symphony cartoons provided a means for Walt to experiment with animation techniques, special effects, storytelling, and other areas which helped give his staff the experience needed to enter the daunting realm of feature animation in the coming years.

The Art of The Walt Disney Studios & Disneyland

“Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” was the very first feature length animated film, and understandably, there were many unexpected delays and production costs while the studio attempted to enter this new field. The delays, along with the film’s cost of $1.5 million on its estimated $250,000 budget, caused many to mockingly refer to the film as “Disney’s Folly.” However, “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” received a standing ovation from the crowd after its premiere in Hollywood on December 21, 1937. The film went on to gross $8 million after its public release the following February, making it the highest-grossing film of the time. Walt Disney’s risk paid off, and the film became one of his greatest achievements and a pioneering moment in animation history.

64. Original Snow White and Forest Animals Production Cel. (Walt Disney Studios, 1938) An original production cel set-up of Snow White and several forest animals from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. This cel set-up depicts Snow White as she first discovers the Dwarfs’ home and peers into the window. This cel was originally prepared by Courvoisier Galleries and is displayed over a hand-painted Courvoisier background. Guthrie Courvoisier was an art dealer who recognized that animation production cels were artwork in their own right, rather than just a part of the process of creating a finalized film. In his gallery, Courvoisier helped establish cels as an art form worthy of collecting and preserving. Many very important animation cels have survived because of Courvoiser Galleries work in the late 1930s to mid-1940s. This cel has an image size of 7.5”x9.25” within its elegant 18.5”x20.25” frame. The condition is very good, with some slight curving to the cels as is commonly seen of cels from this era.

The Art of The Walt Disney Studios & Disneyland

The success of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” allowed the Walt Disney Studios to relocate from their Hyperion Avenue location to new offices in Burbank, CA. Famed German designer Kem Weber planned nearly every aspect of the new studio, including the iconic animation desks and studio furniture. While the new studio set up Walt and his staff with the space and tools they would need to flourish, strains due to WWII contributed to the underperformance of some of Disney’s feature films at the box office. However, this era helped bring about some of the studio’s greatest films and characters such as Pinocchio, Fantasia, Dumbo, Bambi, and many others.

As the second animated feature film by The Walt Disney Studios, Pinocchio’s groundbreaking art style and compelling story helped further the work of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” in establishing the genre of Feature Animation as a legitimate art form. Despite modern reverence for the film as one of the studio’s greatest achievements, high production costs contributed to a financial loss for the studio. However, the film was the first to win two Academy Awards in one year, and iconic moments such as Jiminy Cricket’s “When You Wish Upon a Star” and Pinocchio’s growing nose have created lasting impressions in the hearts of generations of fans.

95. Jiminy Cricket Animator’s Maquette from Pinocchio. (Walt Disney Studios, c.1939) A very rare production maquette used during the creation of the feature film Pinocchio.

With these maquettes, the animators have a physical tool that they can rotate and study, in the same way that an artist might use a live model. Production maquettes rarely become available due to the very limited number that were created, the high level of desirability today, and the general fragile nature of the pieces. The maquette measures 7” tall and is in good condition for its age, with expected signs of wear for a plaster sculpture that is approximately eighty years old. The base has a stamp from the Walt Disney Character Model Department. $4,000-$6,000 36

As WWII began, the studio was in serious financial trouble after box office returns on “Fantasia” and “Pinocchio” failed to cover production costs.

Walt found the character so inspirational that he acquired the rights to produce the film. “Dumbo” was created strategically, with lower production costs and a shorter 64 minute run time that helped the film become the studio’s highest grossing feature of the 1940s, and likely saved the Walt Disney Studios from bankruptcy.

When Moore joined the studio in 1931, Walt recognized that his ability to animate unique personalities made him the ideal directing animator for the Dwarfs in “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”. However, arguably Moore’s greatest contribution to the studio was his redesign of Mickey Mouse for Fantasia; a redesign that has remained as Mickey’s official look to this day. After beginning work on the Mermaid and Lost Boys sequences of “Peter Pan”, Moore sadly passed away in 1952 from injuries sustained in a car accident. His contributions to the history of the Walt Disney Studios cannot be overstated. Moore’s version of Mickey is relatable and authentic, and his character drawings have an undeniable charm and appeal that make them popular with both collectors and animators today.

The Art of The Walt Disney Studios & Disneyland

The beginning of the 1960s was a difficult time for feature animation at the Walt Disney Studios due to the balance of costs against revenue. The studio was forced to lay off hundreds of animators and artists, and even Roy Disney tried to persuade Walt to forgo animation and pursue more profitable ventures. However, Ub Iwerks developed a revolutionary technique based on new Xerox technology that allowed animators to transfer their pencil drawings directly onto cels, as seen in “101 Dalmatians”. This innovation drastically reduced production costs and secured the viability of Walt Disney feature animation. Despite the triumphs, this decade was marked by tragedy, as on December 15, 1966, Walt Disney passed away from lung cancer. The loss of his leadership placed the future of feature animation, Walt Disney World, and Walt’s revolutionary concept of EPCOT Center in jeopardy.

With a history very similar to that of Walt and Roy Disney, The Marx Toy Company was founded in 1919 by two brothers, David and Louis Marx. At that time, the company was just one of many U.S. toy firms which made inferior copies of the hottest European toys of the day. But like Walt Disney, Louis Marx had bigger ideas. What set the company apart from the competition were a few key differences in sales and marketing. By opening their own U.S. based manufacturing facilities, Marx made sure to keep their quality toys priced low and affordable to most Americans. From their earliest days, Louis Marx understood the power of licensing popular comic strip and radio characters for their products, such as Little Abner and Popeye, and later on, the Walt Disney Studios. Ironically, the first Marx toy that resembled a Walt Disney character debuted much earlier in 1931 as an unlicensed Mickey Mouse inspired tin toy called the Merrymakers, and became the biggest selling toy of the 1930s. It wouldn’t be until the 1950s and the advent of television that the marketing partnerships between these two goliaths, The Louis Marx Toy Company and Walt Disney Productions, truly developed. Using their new-found technological advances like injection molding of plastics, as well as their more traditional divisions like LineMar for tin and windup toys, and JayMar for paper toys and coloring books, Marx dominated the market in the 1950s and 1960s. The variety of characters, unique history, and fun imagery make these vintage Marx Disney products very collectible today. 371. Marx MerryMakers Mickey Mouse Inspired Tin Toy. (Marx, 1931) A very early tin wind-up toy by Marx Toys called the Marx MerryMakers. While not an officially licensed Walt Disney product, Marx drew inspiration from Walt Disney’s newly-created cartoon icon Mickey Mouse when creating this wind-up toy in 1931. The high-quality craftsmanship and charming imagery helped the MerryMakers become one of Marx all-time most popular toys. The 4-mouse band is composed of lithographed tin with a metal turnkey on the right side. The toy works, but its functionality seems a little temperamental and it may require minor service. Measuring 9.5” tall, the toy is in very good condition overall with some surface wear throughout from use and age. $400-$600

Hand-painted and molded in hard plastic, the Louis Marx Toy Company manufactured miniature “Disneykin” toys that included many popular Walt Disney characters such as Mickey Mouse, Goofy, Donald Duck, Dumbo, Pluto, and Peter Pan. Marx created a representation of nearly every major Walt Disney character of the time, and the toys were usually sold in four basic formats: Single Figurines with or without a window, TV-Scenes with one or two figurines in a 3”x3” television display box, Playsets with 5-8 figurines in an elaborate window display box, and as a Gift Box which included all or most of the figurines from an entire series. Some of the most sought-after Disneykins items are the incredibly rare store displays that were created to promote the sale of various Disneykins sets. Since only a fraction of the store displays were created compared to the figures and sets themselves, and few of those were kept and preserved, surviving examples are coveted by Marx and Walt Disney collectors alike.

The Walt Disney Studios sought redirection and a new vision in the 1980s. Entertainment executive Michael Eisner, known for reviving ABC Networks and Paramount Pictures, became chairman and CEO of Walt Disney Productions in 1984. He expanded the Walt Disney Studios into home video, television, publishing, and cruise ship travel which helped Disney’s profits successfully rebound. Theme park admission prices were raised slightly without affecting attendance numbers, and this adjustment alone brought millions of dollars in revenue to the studio. The opening of Tokyo Disneyland and Euro Disneyland early in the decade also expanded the theme park family. The end of the 1980s was the prelude to two decades of animation dominance, as “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” and “The Little Mermaid” marked the beginning of the period known as the “Disney Renaissance”.

The Art of The Walt Disney Studios & Disneyland

As a child, Walt Disney developed a love for trains that would stay with him his entire life. Walt’s father worked as a railroad mechanic, and his uncle was a steam locomotive engineer. In Walt’s teenage years, he sold candy, newspapers, cigars, and fruit on the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railway. At the Walt Disney Studios, when Walt discovered that two of his leading animators, Ollie Johnston and Ward Kimball, each had a miniature railroad in their backyards, he was inspired to build one of his own which he called the Carolwood Pacific Railroad. Naturally, when Walt began to have thoughts about building a theme park, one of his first ideas was to surround it with a railroad. Disneyland opened on July 17, 1955, and the variety of lands, attractions, and experiences to be had at the park has contributed to over 60 years of happiness for people all over the world. For Walt, one of the most special aspects of the park was the Disneyland Railroad. Regardless of what your personal favorite part of the park is, the following Disneyland section is sure to bring about a fond memory or two of past trips to The Happiest Place on Earth. 596.

704. Pair of Walt Disney Signed Mark Twain Certificates. (Disneyland 1958) During the 1950s and 1960s, it was not uncommon to find Walt Disney walking through his park. It was well-known that Walt loved Disneyland, and loved seeing his guests enjoy the fruits of his labor. Such was the occasion on July 19, 1958, for twin 8 year old sisters Dana and Denise Hansen. The sisters had just disembarked from the Mark Twain, after being chosen to pilot the paddle wheeler around the Rivers of America. As they stepped off the dock, with their official Mark Twain pilot certificates in hand, they spotted a familiar figure standing off to the side of the dock, enjoying the view of the park. It was Walt Disney himself. Without a moment’s hesitation, the two sisters approached the most famous man in America and were greeted with a warm smile and embrace. Walt Disney loved to welcome his guests, and was always ready with a blue ball point pen to sign autographs. Today was no exception. Walt greeted the girls, commented on their matching straw hats, and asked if they were enjoying the park. With only their pilot certificates in hand, the girls offered them to Walt for his autograph and he happily obliged. It happened in an instant, but it was a moment they would never forget. Now, 60 years later, those matching signed certificates, as well as the matching hats they wore that day, are going to pass from one generation of Disney fans to a newer generation. These two certificates, one filled out for each of the girls, contain a beautiful Walt Disney original signature in the lower-left corner in blue ink. Both certificates measure approximately 7”x8.5” and come in small plastic frames, as displayed by the sisters.

By not complying with the terms of this Release, Bidder waives any and all claims against the RELEASEES. A bidder or buyer acknowledges that there is a risk that subsequent to the execution of this Agreement, one or more of them will discover facts or will discover, suffer, or incur claims and/or damages relating to the subject matter of this release, which were unknown or unanticipated at the time of the auction, which, if known on that date may have materially affected their respective decisions to give the herein release.

All disputes shall be arbitrated by the American Arbitration Association in Los Angeles County, California. Costs shall be split equally among all parties. This replaces the right to go to court, including the right to a jury trial. 35.
