Walt Disney Studios - Legend of Sleepy Hollow Ichabod Crane Cel Original Animation Art (Walt Disney, 1958). Washington Irving's classic story came to animated life in this wonderful film, originally presented as part of "The Adventures Of Ichabod and Mr. Toad," which was released in 1949. This cel shows Ichabod and his horse celebrating a lighthearted moment -- one of pure relief and laughter, no doubt after escaping from the Headless Horseman. Walt Disney's character design was a perfect embodiment of Washington Irving's timeless characters: the comical, flimsy movements of Ichabod Crane, the massive stature of Brom Bones, the beauty of Katrina Van Tassel, and most of all, the menacing and frightening figure of the Headless Horseman. For many, the eerie sound of the Horseman's haunting laugh has never been equalled. The image area of this cel is 9" x 9", and the art is in Excellent condition. The mood, spirit, and essence of Halloween were captured perfectly in this cartoon -- but don't be afraid to bid, it would be far more scary to miss out on this golden opportunity for a wonderful piece of Disney art. Important notice: Heritage usually auctions material at the rate of 200-250 lots per hour. On some occasions eBay Live bid software or the Internet may not be able to keep up with the pace of the auction. We recommend placing a realistic absentee bid now as insurance to avoid disappointment. Occasionally the auctioneer may eliminate or reject an eBay Live bid, and the auctioneer may also reopen a lot after the close of the eBay live bidding (usually because we missed an audience bid), and may reject your bid even if it shows you as the winning bidder. By bidding via eBay Live, you agree that Heritage may award the lot to another bidder at its sole discretion under the circumstances described above or any other reasonable circumstances. Since eBay bids are not shown to us until we open the lot on the floor, we treat those bids just like floor bids. In most cases the floor responds before the eBay bid is presented to us, due to Internet lag time, so for consistency we have made it a policy that floor bids are always considered first over tie eBay live bids. Also please note that all Heritage lots purchased through eBay Live carry a 20% Buyer's Premium. Please make sure you read the Terms and Conditions before you bid.
