Walt Disney Classics Collection Announces Two More Recent Sell Throughs!

The Walt Disney Classics Collection announced today the Sold Out status of the following:

Pinocchio and Jiminy Cricket

Knowing the star of Pinocchio had to be appealing, WaltDisney directed his artists to “win the audience to the little guy.” The lovable living puppet was enhanced with vocal artist Dickie Jones, who Walt said, had a “typical nice boy’s voice.”

Walt also created a cricket sidekick, but reported, “At first we made Jiminy sort of a pompous fellow – kind of a windbag,” but voice artist Cliff Edwards’ performance
had “so much life and fun in it that we altered the character to conform to the voice. Thus Jiminy comes to the screen... lively and full of quips.”

Jiminy (the cricket-sized sculpture is bronze) wants the little woodenhead to call on him any time, so as the little conscience cheerfully chirps, all Pinocchio needs to do is give a little whistle.

Anytime you need me, you know, just whistle!, sculpted by Bruce Lau is a Numbered Limited Edition (NLE) of 750.
Peter Pan, Wendy and Tinker Bell
When Peter Pan declares he’s taking Wendy Darling to Never Land, the entranced young girl is so overjoyed that she decides she will give Peter a kiss — and tiny but temperamental Tinker Bell is having none of it. As for Peter, he doesn’t know what a kiss is but he’s thrown off balance at the prospect of receiving one…a rare occurrence for the bold boy from the realm of enchantment.

Plussed with a pewter feather in Peter’s hat, pewter legs for Wendy, and a bronze Tinker Bell, this dynamic sculpture — bringing together the three most treasured figures from the spellbinding tale of Never Land —reflects Walt Disney’s words: “All the characters in Peter Pan are in some way touched with magic,”even, as Walt described her, “beloved Wendy.”

"I'm So Happy, I Think I'll Give You a Kiss" sculpted by Dusty Horner is a Numbered Limited Edition (NLE) of 1,500.
