Animation Auction


Ron Stark of S/R Laboratories in Westlake Village, California, sent me his latest animation auction catalog and it’s loaded with goodies. There are some amazing Disney, Warner Brothers, UPA, and Hanna-Barbera cels, drawings and backgrounds, but I was especially excited by several Private Snafu (above) and Seaman Hook originals. Most of the catalog is a collection of jaw-dropping Disney cels and backgrounds (like the Donald Duck title card below).

The event takes place Monday, May 26 and 27th, 2008 and it is not an internet auction – it’s a telephone auction, and Ron personally speaks to all bidders. You can preview all 255 lots online starting Monday, May 19th at S/R’s WebCenter. If you need assistance or have questions the telephone number is 818-991-9955.

  • None of the images are appearing, I’m afraid.

  • Charles, as I say in the post above, the images will appear online starting Monday May 19th.

    No, he means the images you tried to include in the post. The filenames appear in the post but not the images. :)

  • I noticed this on my Netscape browser. On Safari the images appear. I’ll look into the problem.

  • I just ran a test—after seeing the images in Safari (beautiful!), I took note of their full filenames and attempted to open them in Firefox independently of the Brew webpage. The browser then gave me this kind of message: “The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.”
    Errors no, snafus yes; this is peculiar.

    Is there a way to save any of these images at all?

  • Now they appear.
    anyone knows, as OliverB said, if there’0s a way to save the images that appear on that marvellous website?

    Wow, wowie wow wow (in my best Walken)

    If only I where a rich man, that has got to be the nicest set of Disney art all in one place, I wonder if any of this stuff came from Ollie’s estate? Sigh, I need to be done with school so I can start collecting!
