1960's Electric Disneyland Monorail Train by Schuco
Tested and Guaranteed to Run!
(Most photos clickable for a larger view)
The finest Disneyland toy ever produced! Beginning in 1961 the Schuco company manufactured this precision-made electric monorail train to the highest German standards. Almost 15" long, these ELEVATED trains were produced for only a few short years and then production 
closed forever. The finely crafted train was expensive by 1960’s standards and few could afford them. Not the cheap battery-operated "kids" monorails produced by Disney recently, but 18 volt DC powered electric train sets with variable speed in forward and reverse, with metal trim (just the way Imagineer Bob Gurr designed the full size originals)!  A transformer was not included with these sets (!) but the trains will run from any standard American 12 to 20 volt electric train transformer.  

The train has been tested and is guaranteed to run!  

This set is in very good condition with a great running trainPaint on the train is fine with only minor scratches (click on photos).  All parts are original except for transformer wires, which are new.  The box is in good condition with bright graphics (click on photo for a closer view).  Does not have the original instruction booklets but we have included photocopies of instructions plus our own tip sheet for setting up your Schuco Monorail and making it run like a charm.  An amazing Disneyland model train set, still ready to ride the rails after 50 years!  If you are looking for a fantastic working set, look no further!  Item # 6818, $895

Walt Disney's Daughter Called Phil Sears' Museum Contribution
"One of the Most Valuable Things Our Museum Can Offer to Our Visitors."

The late Diane Disney Miller left a lasting legacy with-- among other achievements-- The Walt Disney Family Museum.  Phil Sears is honored that a Walt Disney letter from his collection is a star exhibit at the Walt Disney Family Museum.  Diane Disney Miller said:

"This is such an important letter, and to be able to display the original, in my dad's hand, is, to me, one of the most valuable things our museum can offer to our visitors.  When I first discovered this letter I was so touched by it .. the very young Walt, practically penniless, living with his uncle and working out of his uncle's garage, but presenting himself as an established producer offering an opportunity to Mrs. Davis' little daughter.  I'm certain that the absurdity of his situation never occurred to him, just the possibilities that it presented.  He had confidence in his own ability, and had just persuaded his brother Roy to join with him.  This was the beginning of something wonderful."

You can see the letter in person at the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco, or click HERE for a virtual view.

1947 Animation Book Autographed by Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston

Click any image for a better view
Robert Field's "The Art of Walt Disney" was the first book fully devoted to art and craft of the Walt Disney Studio.  It's 290 pages chronical the making of a Disney animated film from start to finish.  Walt Disney was barely 40 years old when it was first published. The title page, across from Walt's photo, has been autographed by Disney legends Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston, two of the animation masters at the Disney Studio during the Golden Age of animation.  They belonged to the elite group Walt Disney called "His Nine Old Men."

  Frank Thomas (September 5, 1913, - September 8, 2004) was one of Walt Disney's team of animators known as the Nine Old Men. He graduated from Stanford University, attended Chouinard Art Institute, then joined The Walt Disney Company on September 24, 1934 as employee number 224. There he animated dozens of feature films and shorts, and also was a member of the Dixieland band Firehouse Five Plus Two. His work in animated shorts included The Brave Little Tailor, in which he animated scenes of Mickey Mouse and the king; Mickey and the bear in The Pointer, and German dialogue scenes in the World War II propaganda short Education for Death (shortly before Thomas enlisted in the airforce). He also worked on Pooh and Piglet in two of the Winnie the Pooh featurettes. In feature films, among the characters and scenes Thomas animated were the dwarfs crying over Snow White's "dead" body, Pinocchio singing at the marionette theatre, Bambi and Thumper on the ice, Lady and the Tramp eating spaghetti, the three fairies in Sleeping Beauty, Merlin and Arthur as squirrels in The Sword in the Stone, and King Louie in The Jungle Book. Thomas was directing animator for several memorable villains, including the evil stepmother Lady Tremaine in Cinderella, the Queen of Hearts in Alice in Wonderland, and Captain Hook in Peter Pan. He retired from Disney on January 31, 1978.

Oliver Johnston (born on October 31, 1912- April 14, 2008) was a pioneer in the field of motion picture animation. He was one of Disney's Nine Old Men, and the last living member. Johnston attended Stanford University, the University of California, Berkeley, and Chouinard Art Institute. Ollie married a fellow Disney employee, Ink and Paint artist Marie Worthey, in 1943. Marie Johnston passed away May 20, 2005. He was a directing animator at Walt Disney Studios from 1935-1978. He contributed to many films including Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Fantasia, Bambi and Pinocchio. Johnston co-authored, with Frank Thomas, the classic reference book The Illusion Of Life. This book helped preserve the knowledge of the techniques that were developed at the studio. The partnership of Ollie Johnston and Frank Thomas is fondly presented in the documentary "Frank and Ollie", produced by Theodore Thomas, Frank's son.

Actual Disneyland Mark Twain Riverboat Sign  

Click any image for a better view
If you look closely at the photo above right, you'll see this type of sign in use on the famous Mark Twain paddle boat.  Since Disneyland's opening day in 1955 the Mark Twain has been steaming the Rivers of America past Disneyland's Frontierland, and later New Orleans Square and Critter Country.  The Mark Twain is one of Disneyland's most iconic attractions, and sometimes its distant whistle is the first sound a guest hears even before entering the gates of The Happiest Place on Earth.  Famous entertainers used the Mark Twain as their stage, from Louis Satchmo Armstrong to the Osmond Brothers.  Actress Irene Dunne christened the ship, and even now the paddlewheeler stars in FANTASMIC. 

Here I am proud to offer an authentic piece of the grand ship, and original Disneyland Mark Twain Steamboat brass sign.  From the collection of a former WED/Imagineering employee, this genuine Disneyland attraction sign measures 18" X 4.75".  Gracing Rivers of America in Frontierland since opening day the Steamboat Mark Twain remains an enduring symbol of Disneyland past and present. This very rare item is must for a true Disneyland fan's collection!  Only this one available.  Includes the Phil Sears Collectibles Lifetime Guarantee of Authenticity.  Item #1189, $249

Original Herb Ryman EPCOT Attraction Art 
 

Click any image for a better view
An original
Herbert Ryman concept drawing of Will Rogers, Mark Twain and Ben Franklin for The American Adventure at Epcot Center. This is Herb Ryman's felt marker original art on a 14 in. x 17 in. sheet of illustration paper.  Includes Ryman's handwritten notations, "Set up for 3 heads/Rogers/Twain/Franklin/Finale/Group Discussion."  This rare artwork conceptualizes an early version of the show in which Will Rogers was one of three hosts.  In the final version Rogers appears in the show but does not host it. 

Herb Ryman joined the Disney Studio in 1938 and immediately worked as art director on Fantasia and Dumbo. In 1941 Ryman toured with Walt Disney and other Disney Studio artists on a three month "Good Will Tour of South America." Production of the two Disney classics Saludos Amigos and The Three Caballeros, resulted from this trip.  After World War II Ryman worked for other studios, but in 1953 Walt Disney lured him back to work on plans for Disneyland. Disneyland became the centerpiece of his Disney career. Among his contributions were designs for Main Street, U.S.A., Sleeping Beauty Castle and New Orleans Square. Ryman also contributed concepts for the Jungle Cruise, Pirates of the Caribbean, and for attractions featured at the 1964-65 New York World’s Fair, including Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln.

Ryman worked on many special projects at Disney over a five decade span. He was the chief designer of the Cinderella Castle at the Walt Disney World Resort. Although Ryman retired from The Walt Disney Company in 1971, he was again lured back in 1976 as a consultant on Walt Disney World's EPCOT Center, including renderings and concept paintings for The American Adventure and the China Pavilion.  Here I am pleased to offer two concept drawings Ryman did as part of his work on EPCOT Center.

This is a rare opportunity to own precious original Herb Ryman Imagineering drawing.  Includes the Phil Sears Collectibles Lifetime Guarantee of Authenticity.   Item # 6416, $750

Disneyland 30 Year Cast Member Award
Click any image for a better view
Jiminy Cricket is delightfully cast in solid bronze in this rare cast-member award given in appreciation of 30 years of employment at the park.  This piece was awarded to Disneyland Anaheim cast member Beverly Butrum.  Beverly is considered by some an "unofficial Disneyland Legend."  Beverly Butrum began her Disneyland career in 1967 just months after the death of Walt Disney.  She was among the first to work as a hostess at the newly opened New Orleans Square in Disneyland in Anaheim, California, and became friends with Walt Disney's brother Roy.  Beverly brought the charm of a Southern Belle to selling antiques in Disney's One-of- a-Kind Shop, located next to the new state-of-the-art attraction, the Pirates of the Caribbean.  Later, Beverly moved up to the Disney Gallery above the Pirates attraction.  After 37 years with Disneyland, Beverly retired in 2003.  Hundreds attended her retirement celebration at the Riverbelle Terrace and she was given a miniature Main Street USA window in her honor.  Jiminy stands on a matchbook, proudly displaying the number 30, all cast in bronze and mounted on a marble base.  He stands almost 8" tall in all.  It's rare to own this unique Disneyland collectible if you work at Disneyland- and even rarer when cast members are willing to sell them.  This substantial piece of art weighs 4 lbs.  In very fine condition.  Item # 6879, $599
Special U.S. shipping charge on this item $19.95.  Foreign shipping $59.95.  Automatic checkout will not calculate foreign shipping accurately.  After you place your order we will email foreign customers for additional shipping payment.

An Actual Piece of Walt Disney's First Hollywood Workshop

When Walt Disney came to Hollywood in 1923, he roomed at his uncle Robert's house at 4406 Kingswell Avenue.  He built an animation stand in his uncle's garage, and worked on an animated reel of cartoon jokes which he tried to sell to the Pantages Theater Company.  The garage-turned-studio (pictured on page 36 of THE ART OF WALT DISNEY by Christopher Finch) was sold in 1982 and moved to the Garden Grove Historical Society, and his been on permanent display there for the past thirty years, just a few miles from Disneyland.  Leading the team that purchased and moved the garage was Disney employee and fan Arthur Adler.  When the garage was moved, Adler saved the small pieces of wood that splintered off the garage during dismantling.  These pieces, which were too small to be used in the restoration of the garage, are now available for sale to Walt Disney fans who appreciate the significance of having a little bit of Walt's first Hollywood workshop/studio as part of their personal collection.  The wood itself measures approximately 1" in length.  Each piece, being original, will vary of course.  Also included is 15 page package of documentation prepared by Adler, detailing the history of Walt Disney's garage studio and it's metamorphosis from Walt's garage studio to museum piece.  Includes our Lifetime Guarantee of Authenticity Certificate.  Item # 6000, $39.95
