Montblanc Great Characters Walt Disney Special Edition ballpoint pen
Item no: 119836
The Montblanc Great Characters Walt Disney Special Edition ballpoint pen. Walt Disney pioneered new forms of entertainment, both on the screen and in real life. The Great Characters Walt Disney Special Edition's shape is inspired by the famous monorail at Disneyland Park.
When it debuted in 1959 to transport guests around the park, it was the first daily operating monorail in the Western Hemisphere. The clip of the pen references the chimney on the steamboat in Steamboat Willie, Disney's first animated short film with synchronized sound and starring Mickey Mouse and his beloved Minnie Mouse. The black, red and yellow color combination of the writing instrument echoes the traditionally associated colors that represent Mickey - black, red and yellow. The precious resin cap and barrel are adorned with various "Hidden Mickeys," as a nod to the fact that fans are constantly looking for Mickey's silhouette hidden in Disney parks, accommodations and resorts around the world.
Despite early setbacks, Walt Disney never gave up on his ambition to be a remarkable entertainer. The coordinates refer to the location of his uncle's garage in Los Angeles, California, where Walt Disney rebuilt his dream after leaving his first studio and where he and his brother made several inventions, including the innovative camera stand.
