Sales Reps and Authorized Dealers were advised today of the suspension of the following:
Belle and Beast
Mickey Then and Now
Belle and Beast ("Tale as Old as Time"), an Open Edition release sculpted by Kent Melton was released in March 1997. Though not an official series, they were referred to as part of the Dancing Couples.
Mickey Mouse ("Mickey Then and Now"), an Open Edition release sculpted by Patrick Romandy-Simmons was released in January 2003. This charming sculpture was released in honor of Mickey's 75th Birthday.
This rare appearance captures Mickey's evolution of a truly remarkable career. The black and white version of Mickey is from Plane Crazy (1928) and the colorized version is from Runaway Brain (1995).
