Lot Details
Four Walt Disney photostats from “Fantasia”
1940, comprising a photostat of the model sheet for Chernabog and three photostats of the model sheets of the spirits all from the Night on Bald Mountain sequence in the film.

Vladimir Tytla is known for animating many villains during his employment with the Disney Studios such as Strombolli, the sinister Coachman and J. Worthington Foulfellow all from Pinocchio. However, the one villain he is most famous for is the larger than life Chernabog, the god of evil and destruction featured in the Night on Bald Mountain sequence near the end of the film of Fantasia. Apparently the model for animating this character was the famous horror actor Bela Lugosi, who was hired by the Disney Studio. Tytla was not completely convinced of Lugosi’s interpretation of this role and had Wilfred Jackson, a fellow animator, act it out instead.
