"Lady and The Tramp" (1951) - Art Corner Cels of Tramp and Lady

Part of the "Lady and The Tramp" series.

These are matched cels that were purchased from the Art Corner at Disneyland. The Art Corner is where you could thumb through cels from films like one would thumb through LP Records at the "Record Store." Damn, I'm getting old... Remember "LP" stood for Long Play.

I digress... There were rows and rows of these bins with the artwork in a cardboard frame wrapped in plastic. If memory serves me right, they were priced at under $5.00 -- probably around $2.00. BUT that's when $2.00 was really worth something!

Jeff Pepper had a great article on the Art Corner posted at 2719 Hyperion -- please check it out for more detail.

These cels are pretty good -- especially when framed together. Individually, they are just "OK" in my book. Lady has her typical "deer in the headlights" look. And Tramp is nice with the bone, but it doesn't really capture his fundamental character.

That being said, it makes for a great piece on the wall. The very large size of the images results in this piece being one of the first spotted by any young kids that visit the house!
