"Fantasia" (1940) [Series] - Dance of the Hours Cel

More "Fantasia" items from the Cowan Collection...

This cel is a little different because of the large number of characters on the cel -- 13 in all.  While you might think that the alligator in the front is on another cel, it isn't ...The cel is on an airbrushed background.
