"The Wolf." Peter and the Wolf animation production cel from Make Mine Music, 1946. 178x229 mm; 7x9 inches. Taped to mat. Label on mat is incorrectly dated 1936.

This is an original hand inked and painted cel production of the vicious wolf from the Disney adaptation of Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf, part of Disney's classic 1946 musical "package feature" Make Mine Music. The matching scene appears at 11 min 54 sec during the film's climax, as the wolf lunges for the feisty (but dazed) woodpecker Sacha, but is held back by the rope which Peter and Ivan the cat have tied to his tail.
