Item Number: 109892

Rare original production cel featuring Mickey Mouse and Chip the chipmunk in a wintry scene from the short film Squatter’s Rights. Boldly signed on the mat by Walt Disney. Produced in Technicolor by Walt Disney Productions and directed by Jack Hannah, the animated short film Squatter’s Rights premiered in theaters on June 7, 1946. The story centered on a confrontation between Mickey Mouse’s dog Pluto and chipmunks Chip and Dale who had taken up residence in Mickey’s hunting shack. The short film was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film at the 19th Academy Awards, but ultimately lost to The Cat Concerto, an MGM Tom and Jerry film, which shared one of 7 Oscars for the Tom and Jerry series. Matted and framed. The entire piece measures 16.25 inches by 17.25 inches. Rare and desirable featuring Disney’s most recognizable character.
