Walt Disney Archives Collection - Jiminy Cricket



Jiminy Cricket Maquette

'Pinocchio' (1940) was the first Disney feature to utilize animator models or "maquettes." This skillfully crafted, hand-painted sculpture originates from a late 1930's Pinocchio animation maquette from the Walt Disney Animation Research Library

The Duckman's website lives on! Don, this new line is so reminiscent of the Classic Collection, I hope your website once again becomes the go-to site for news and updates. WDCC retired before they ever did a Coachman from Pinocchio. Now hope is rekindled in my heart! Thanks for posting these new pieces. They are amazing, and I am hoping this new Archive Collection catches on fire.

Thanks Bryan! So reminiscent of the Classics Collection and with the same team behind this line, looking forward to what will be planned for future releases. As you may recall, the Coachman was one I campaigned hard for. I understand there is a maquette of the Coach being pulled by the Donkey Boys. Hoping we see something like this and the Coachman. Hope is rekindled for sure!
