This is not my artwork, but it’s a very important piece of artwork if you love Disney and especially Disney Afternoon.

This is the original pitch painting created by my good friend Tad Stones for ‘Kit Colby and the Rescue Rangers’, a new concept he took to Michael Eisner and Jeffrey Katzenberg in the early development days of what became Disney Afternoon.

According to Tad, within 2 minutes Eisner said ‘take out that Kit guy, put the two chipmunks in instead’ and the rest is history.

As with any new show, it developed and evolved. Gadget got a little prettier, Monterey Jack got Kit’s dress sense and the Chinese cricket Chirp Sing thankfully didn’t survive long enough to age awkwardly into the PC era ;)

Camille the Chameleon was the idea of fellow Ducktales writer Jymn Magon.

This is an awesome painting and part of Disney television history and I thank Tad for his permission to upload it and share its story with y’all :)

IT IS TIME for Fine Art to GET DANGEROUS!
James’ Dangerous print will go ON SALE next Tuesday March 26th from Acme Archives. The prints are a ltd edition of 250 (red & blue) & 50 (teal & purple). They are 18x24” and cost $50 each.
These are BEAUTIFUL prints, gang. I’ve held them in my hands and they are the class-act one has come to expect from Acme Archives.
Disney Afternoon does not get as much attention from Disney as it probably should. It’s EXTRA important that if you love Disney Afternoon, you should support it any time something official DOES appear. The Disney Afternoon pin sets sold out VERY quickly in the parks and we want to see this print do the same!
The more Disney is made aware there is a demand for Darkwing Duck, Rescue Rangers, Ducktales and all the rest, the more they’ll maybe produce for us to enjoy!
So reblog this like whoa, spread the word and go visit Acme IT IS TIME for Fine Art to GET DANGEROUS!

Do you remember this famous piece of duck fanart by James Silvani seen online and displayed at our con tables over the last few years?

Guess what? ‘Dangerous’ is now an OFFICIAL, fully-licensed 18x24” silkscreen print, coming later this month from Acme Archives.

This is NOT just a reprint of James’ older picture, he has created all-new artwork(I know, I watched him do it!)  and as you can see, a VERY limited edition colour variant of 50. Acme will announce in the weeks ahead how you can buy these prints, either through their site or at special events.

Follow @AcmeArchives on twitter for updates on release dates :)
