Happy Father's Day!
Happy Father's Day to all the Dads who visit either the Blog, Website and/or Cafe today. The Walt Disney Classics Collection has released some significant sculptures over the year's depicting that special moment of a father and child. One that has personal meaning for me is King Triton & Ariel ("Morning, Daddy!"), a 2004 Numbered Limited Edition (NLE) Gold Circle Exclusive sculpted by Patrick Romandy-Simmons. Also released were the following:
Pinocchio & Geppetto ("A Father's Joy" - pictured at right) released as both a Numbered Limited Edition (NLE) with a gold-tipped feather in Pinocchio's cap and an Open Edition release with a yellow-tipped feather sculpted by Dusty Horner.
Pongo with Pepper & Penny ("Proud Pongo"), the first Disneyana release by the Walt Disney Classics Collection, a Numbered Limited Edition and then followed as an Open Edition release as well sculpted by Chris Peterson.
Mufasa & Simba ("Pals Forever"), first release in the Tribute Series, sculpted by Chuck Williams.
