In the late 1940s the Disney studios had fallen on hard times. The creative and financial drain of World War II had taken its toll. But once again Walt Disney was up to the challenge. He had decided to take a chance on another fairytale, Cinderella. Based on the Charles Perrault version of the classic and costing a then unheard of $3 million, the story of the scullery maid who finds true love with the help of a single glass slipper was released in 1950. The film was an immediate hit and began a run of successes for Disney and his creative team that lasted through the rest of his lifetime.

Here in this painting, we see Cinderella's fairy Godmother utter the enchanted words "Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo" which transforms a pumpkin into Cinderella's magical coach. Then whisked to the ball, she will dance until just before the stroke of midnight with her enchanted Prince.
