1. 1954 Disneyland Prospectus with Photos. (Disneyland, 1954) An extremely rare prospectus packet for Disneyland, dated September 3, 1954. The prospectus, titled “The Disneyland Story”, was used to educate potential investors as to what they might expect at the park when it opened the following year. The document includes overviews of the lands in the park as well as early descriptions of some of the planned attractions of the park, including some that would never get made. The packet comes in a binder marked “Disneyland” in the lower-right corner. The binder contains (26) 8”x 10” black and white photos of concept art, maps, and various scenes which help to convey the descriptions found in the document. This prospectus packet provides an incredibly rare and seldom seen glimpse into Walt Disney’s vision for his park almost a year before it opened. The 14-page document is in good condition with a few pages loose from the staple in the top-left corner. The last page has a torn portion along the left-edge. The binder is in fair condition with some separation along the spine, cover-wear, and a torn bottom-right corner. The photos are in very good condition with minor wear. Most of the photos have Disney’s numbering and date codes stamped on the reverse. $1,000-$2,000 4


WATHEL ROGERS

Wathel Rogers was just 20 years old when he joined the Disney Studio in 1939 as an Assistant Animator. Even with his success in animation, his desire to bring objects to life was not limited to just pencil on paper. In his spare time, Rogers was sculpting and building toys to satisfy his creative mind. While Rogers had been doing this for fun since childhood, it wasn’t until his talents caught Walt Disney’s eye that his abilities were put to practical use. In 1954, Disney approached him for help on “Project Little Man”, the construction of a nine-inch moving and dancing figure which became the prototype of Disney’s Audio-Animatronics® technology. Rogers’ research and effort pioneered the field of Audio-Animatronics and his groundbreaking work can be seen in such attractions as “Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln”, the “Enchanted Tiki Room”, and “Pirates of the Caribbean”. Wathel Rogers became a Disney Legend in 1995, and passed away in 2000. His contributions to both Disneyland and Walt Disney World have helped create countless memories for generations of park-goers.

2. “Project Little Man” Concept Art Print. (Disneyland, c.1980s) A beautiful concept art print featuring rare imagery from “Project Little Man”, Disney’s precursor to audio-animatronics. In the early 1950s, Walt Disney instructed Imagineers Roger Broggie and Wathel Rogers to begin working on “Project Little Man”, a 9-inch tall animatronic figure which could dance and talk. The techniques and principles learned from this project would provide the basis for Disneyland’s use of audio-animatronics on such iconic attractions as “Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln” and the “Enchanted Tiki Room”. This concept art print faithfully recreates the original concept art, and was likely used in a presentation or display on the history of audio-animatronics. This print came from the estate of Imagineer Wathel Rogers, and provides a seldom-seen look into the very beginnings of audio-animatronics. The print measures 22.25”x29” within its mat and is in very good condition with some minor wear to the mat from use. The back of the print has “Project Little Man” written in pencil. $200-$400

REMEMBERING DISNEYLAND 3. Original Marc Davis Gag Drawing of Wathel Rogers. (Disney, c.1964) A humorous gag drawing created by Marc Davis for fellow Imagineer Wathel Rogers. Rogers worked extensively on the “Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln” attraction and was tasked with wearing the early version of a motion-capture suit which would provide the basis of movements for this revolutionary audio-animatronic® figure. Rogers work would influence modern motion-capture technology and provide the basis of knowledge for later iconic Disney park attractions. This drawing was created during a very historic moment of Disney’s audio-animatronic® technology, and features a great image of Wathel wearing his motioncapture suit while the Lincoln animatronic figure asks, “Wathel, why is it, that when you move, I move?”. This drawing is accomplished in ink on 3-hole animation paper and measures 12.5”x15.5”.

LINDA ALLEN

Before the years of movie rentals and home video, Disney had to make creative use of their library of animated feature films. One method was to show the films on television, however this resulted in lower quality broadcasts with often significantly cut-down versions of the original films. The other strategy was to re-release films every few years in select theaters, which gave new generations the opportunity to see the animated classics their parents fondly remembered. To promote these theatrical re-releases, Disney created Promotional Tours in which live actors, puppets, and corresponding costumed characters from Disneyland traveled around the country performing live at select venues. These tours were incredibly successful, and often featured “Golden Horseshoe Revue” star Fulton Burley as the Master of Ceremonies. These tours were most frequent between the 1960s-80s, and have been used to promote such films as “Peter Pan”, “Cinderella”, “Dumbo”, “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”, along with many more.

BOB GURR

REMEMBERING DISNEYLAND

When it comes to Imagineers who personify the “Disney Way”, few have gone as above and beyond in both their career and personal life as Robert Henry “Bob” Gurr. It is often said that “if it has wheels at Disneyland, Bob Gurr designed it”. That sentiment isn’t actually too far off, as Gurr’s design work has led to the creation of early Main Street vehicles, the “Monorail”, “Viewliner”, as well as vehicles for “Autopia”, “Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride”, the “Haunted Mansion”, and many other attractions within every land of the park. In his almost 30 years of Imagineering work for Disney, Gurr created countless designs for some of the most popular attractions and elements of the Disney parks. Now retired, Gurr is well-known for making appearances at virtually every Disney event he can go to. In 2004, Gurr was inducted as a Disney Legend, and his eagerness to talk to Disney fans and to share his experiences and stories has earned him a special place in Disney history as well as in the hearts of many Disney fans.

CAPTAIN EO When the 3-D sci-fi short film “Captain EO” debuted at the Disney Parks in 1986, it represented a momentous achievement for Disney’s theme park and film divisions.

The film starred Michael Jackson just two years after his “Thriller” album debuted, and combined the creative minds of Executive Producer George Lucas and Director Francis Ford Coppola into what would be, in dollars per minute of screen time, the most expensive film ever made at approximately $23 Million for the 17 minute production.

Exclusion: The auctioneer reserves the right to exclude any persons of entity: (a) from bidding, or (b) from the floor of the auction on the day of sale. 6. Guaranty: If any entity places any bid, then the individual actually placing the bid shall guaranty payment for any successful bid. 7. Credit: Bidders shall establish credit with the auctioneer prior to placing bids. Auctioneer shall be the sole determiner of whether or not credit of any Bidder is satisfactory to auctioneer. If Bidder is not known to auctioneer, a proposed Bidder shall furnish satisfactory credit information (”SCI”) at least five business days prior to the auction. Such SCI shall include two credit references, a social security number, and appropriate credit card information. Auctioneer reserves the right to make a credit check of any proposed Bidder and such Bidder consents to the making of such a credit check. The acceptance of checks is in the auctioneer’s sole discretion and may be based on a variety of criteria, such as a credit bureau report, a bank check, or otherwise. The auctioneer will accept, up to five business days prior to the date of the auction, deposits for bidding, if the check is a local check; or up to 10 business days before deposit if the check is not a local check.

Any lot not receiving any recognized bid shall be passed. 19. Winner of Lot: The highest qualified bidder recognized by the auctioneer shall be the Buyer. In the event of a tie bid, the bid received first by the auctioneer shall prevail. If there is a dispute among Bidders, the auctioneer may in his sole and absolute discretion re-offer the lot. There are times when a bid may not be recognized by the auctioneer; in that situation the recognized bid will be the winning bid regardless of whether or not the competing, but unrecognized bid, may have been higher. The auctioneer may in his absolute discretion re-open the bidding immediately after closing a lot to accept any bid in error not previously recognized. 20. Good Faith Bidding: Auctioneer reserves the right to honor any bid or to limit the amount of any bid. All bids must be made in good faith.

Auctioneer retains the Buyer’s Premium as its own property. 26. Payment Terms: Payment is due upon the closing of the auction sessions, or upon presentation of an invoice. If payment in full is not received within (7) calendar days after the close of the auction, or within (5) calendar days of the invoice date, whichever is later, the auctioneer may in its sole and absolute discretion, void the sale. If the sale is voided for non-payment the successful bidder shall still owe the auctioneer its fees. Sales tax will be collected from any successful bidder unless the appropriate certificate is on file with the auctioneer at least five business days before the first date set for the auction. If the successful bidder choses to send an “e-check”, electronic funds transfer, or ACH payment, and it does not clear, the bidder authorizes the auctioneer to use the credit card on file. If payment is not made the auctioneer reserves the right to sell the lot to any under-bidder or in any future auction; any difference in the realized proceeds shall be the responsibility of the non-paying successful first bidder.

If the lot is not out of the auctioneer’s possession within 15 days of the close of the auction sessions, a reasonable storage fee shall be imposed. It is the Buyer’s duty and obligation to insure the lot from the date that title transfers to the successful Bidder, i.e., upon the receipt of full payment by the auctioneer (the “TRANSFER DATE”). Risk of loss passes to the Buyer on the TRANSFER DATE. Delivery costs and insurance during delivery are the responsibility of the Buyer. Auctioneer is not responsible for frames or glass breakage; such breakage shall not be the basis for any return of any lot. 28. Interest: Any unpaid invoice will bear interest at the highest rate allowed by California law. 29.

Descriptions are only being presented for the benefit of those bidders who have not had the opportunity to view the lots prior to bidding and no description in the catalogue shall create any warranty. Color variations are to be expected and are not the basis for any return of any lot. Auctioneer is only selling the right, title, and interest of any lot that has been consigned to the auctioneer by virtue of any consignment agreements. The auctioneer disclaims any warranty of fitness or merchantability. 32. Disclaimer of Damages; Sole Remedies: Auctioneer disclaims any damages, consequential or otherwise. Auctioneer shall not be responsible for consequential damages, incidental damages, compensatory damages, or any other damages. Up to the date that the auctioneer pays the consignor (45 days after the close of the auction sessions), and in the event that Auctioneer cannot deliver a lot, or if it is established that the lot lacks title, or some other transfer or condition issue is claimed, the sole remedy of the Bidder up to a date six months after the close of the auction sessions shall be the rescission of the sale and the refund of any amount paid by the Buyer. After the consignor is paid by the auctioneer the sole remedy of the Buyer is against the consignor, and vice versa. 33. Statements are Opinions: In consideration of participation in the auction, and the placing of a bid, Bidder expressly releases auctioneer, its officers, directors, employees, affiliates, outside experts, and attorneys the (”RELEASEES”) from any and all claims, causes of action, in law or in equity, direct or indirect, known or unknown that he/she/it may have with respect to the auction, the catalogue, the conduct of the auction, or the lots being purchased. 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. Despite this knowledge and understanding, each bidder and buyer agrees that it is assuming the risk of such unknown and unanticipated facts and claims, and in connection herewith, each hereby expressly waives any and all rights under California Civil Code Section 1542, which section has been explained to and is understood by each party and which reads as follows: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.” 34: Arbitration: By placing a bid in the auction, a Bidder agrees to the dispute resolution set forth herein. 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. Prohibited Activities: Any agreement between consignors and bidders to sell by private sale any lot, or to effect a non-sale of an item at auction is prohibited and auctioneer reserves the right to collect from the bidder the Buyer’s Premium. 36.
