Original Walt Disney Key Master 5 Production Cel Set Up on Production Background from 101 Dalmatians featuring Pongo and Perdita from 1961
We are pleased to offer an original Walt Disney key master 5 production cel set up on production background from One Hundred and One Dalmatians featuring Pongo and Perdita.
In this scene, Pongo descends the steps of the basement to greet Perdita and the new born puppies. This is a beautiful set up that allows you to see a progression of cels placed on the production background that creates the animation sequence of the scene. You also get to see the detailed line work that went into making the backgrounds. I counted 60 spots total in this Key Master set up. How many do you count?
If you added up all the spots on every drawing or cel of all 99 puppies plus Pongo and Perdita, you'd have a total of 6,469,952 spots. While 72 belong to Pongo, and 68 to Perdita, the rest belong to the puppies. There was a team of artists whose job was just to draw spots on the dogs.
Perhaps luckily for the artists, no two real dalmatians have the same number and pattern of spots. Cruella de Vil probably didn't know this fact when she was plotting to make herself a dalmatian coat. If she'd succeeded, the pattern wouldn't have matched!
