Say 'Aloha' to the Hawaiian Holiday Scene!

Sales reps and Authorized Walt Disney Classics Collection (WDCC) Dealers were advised today, March 21st of the retirement of the Hawaiian Holiday Scene, an Open Edition scene release which made its debut February, 2009.

A four-piece scene (each sculpture sold separately) that included Mickey Mouse ("Hawaiian Harmony"), Minnie Mouse ("Swaying Sweetheart"), Donald Duck ("Tropical Tempo") and Goofy ("Swell Surfer"). Complete scene was sculpted by Jacqueline Perreault Gonzales.

Special Note: Goofy is already sold out and very limited quantities are available for Mickey, Minnie and Donald. Please contact your Authorized Dealer for availability.

For your viewing pleasure (courtesy of YouTube.com) is the animated short Hawaiian Holiday (1937):

Since Jacqueline began sculpting for the Collection, she has treated us to some terrifically well-crafted pieces, and this scene is no exception. I just wonder if the scene's retirement spells doom for us to ever see Pluto added to this scene now? Would certainly have been nice to finish off the short with his inclusion, maybe with the crab hanging from his tail...

Hey Jason,

Since she began sculpting for the collection, Jacqueline has done some amazing pieces! Her most recent sculpture of Bambi & Thumper I think is the best version of both characters to date (in my opinion)! I've come to look forward in seeing what she'll be doing next for the collection.

I too wondered with the scene retirement, if hopes of seeing Pluto (and an Opening Title) will ever happen :( It was one of the few shorts that starred all of the Fab Five characters and would have been pretty cool to have a scene showing them all together.

Pluto with the crab hanging from his tail was the moment I too hoped they would have done, if Pluto joined the scene.

Fingers crossed, maybe we'll yet see him eventually added.
