Profiles in History to offer Walt Disney's will & his signed document trademarking his name
Walt Disney signed Last Will and Testament.

CALABASAS, CA.- Walt Disney’s Last Will and Testament, plus his signed document marking the genesis of the Disney Empire/brand; How the Grinch Stole Christmas production artwork (perfectly timed to the 50th anniversary of the animated TV special!) and Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas original artwork and set pieces; Disneyana, featuring rare animation art and Disney park props, including an “Atom-mobile” miniature prop from the retired Journey Through Inner Space attraction, an assortment of props from The Pirates of the Caribbean attraction, a miniature Jungle Cruise boat, cast member attraction costumes and rare hand-silkscreened ride posters highlight Profiles in History highly anticipated Animation and Disneyana auction, Friday, December 9, 2016.

Other featured items include the instantly recognizable I Dream of Jeannie and Bewitched opening titles cels and the most comprehensive collection of artist Robert “Bob” William John Olszewski works ever assembled—from his earliest days, prior to working with Goebel/ Hummel, to his most spectacular and desirable Disney-related pieces. Every work of art exhibits the world-renown, legendary attention to detail, design, depth and quality that has inspired Bob’s celebrated reputation and legacy. Every piece in this collection is extremely rare, sold out, and no longer available. While many items are signed, upon request, Bob has graciously agreed to personally sign any of the lots that are not.

This sale represents a rare opportunity for collectors on so many fronts. In addition to Walt Disney’s last will and testament and signed document trademarking his legendary name, we have an extensive selection of illustration art, including Charles Schulz, Dr. Seuss, Chuck Jones, Gary Larson, E.H. Shepard and Robert Crumb. I am especially excited to have a wide array of Bob Olszewski’s extraordinary sculptures in this sale, highlighted by the Disneyland Main Street diorama. There’s literally something here for everyone!, said Joe Maddalena, owner of Profiles in History.

Additional auction highlights include:

• The Transformers original animated series never-before-seen production art, scripts, and cels
