Let's Go Fishing!

At the time Goofy & Wilbur were released, I thought what a great pairing this sculpture would be with Fishing Mickey. Even though they're from two different shorts, it could really make for a fun display!

I recently added both these pieces to my collection and couldn't be happier in how the two pieces look together. It's like they were each sculpted with the other piece in mind.

Fishing Mickey ('Something Fishy') from The Simple Things (1953) was an Open Edition release sculpted by Patrick Romandy-Simmons. The sculpture was released in March, 1999 and honored with retirement in April, 2001.

Goofy & Wilbur ('Fishing Follies') from Goofy & Wilbur (1939) was a Numbered Limited Edition (NLE) of 1,000 sculpted by Bruce Lau. The sculpture was released in October, 2007.
