Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland in Anaheim, California

A rare collection of artwork featuring concepts for Disneyland rides and areas that never saw the light of day has officially been auctioned off.

The auction took place at an event orchestrated by Heritage Auctions in Beverly Hills, Calif., earlier this month.

It featured hand-drawn sketches from the Bradley/Bushman Early Disneyland Archives, which conceptualized rides and themed lands for the Disney theme park based in Anaheim.

Among the never-before-seen theme park plans and concepts for the travel destination were an "Anything Can Happen" land, and plans for underwater aquariums, where guests would have walked into the mouths of the crocodile from Peter Pan or Monstro the whale from Pinocchio to view marine life.

One other concept detailed that a larger-than-life, 80-foot-tall statue of Goofy dressed as a clown would have been situated where the theme park destination's Sleeping Beauty Castle now stands.

The "Anything Can Happen" land would've been based on "Anything Can Happen Day," which was a theme featured weekly on the Mickey Mouse Club television series, according to a listing.

The once-planned land would have catered to young guests, with attractions themed to cartoon shorts featuring Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy and Pluto, the listing added.

Other sketches that were auctioned this month showed unrealized concept art for Steamboat Willie’s Paddle Boat, Pluto’s Dog House, the Lost Boys Tree and a Casey Jones Jr. roller coaster.

Another area would have feature figures of lions, tigers and zebras, and allowed children to swing from jungle vines like Tarzan.

Along with the Monstro aquarium exhibit, Disneyland once also planned to feature a water-based thrill ride that would see guests exit the mouth of the whale.

An early version of the Alice in Wonderland ride that is currently featured at Disneyland, meanwhile, was originally planned to be a walk-through fun house type of attraction.

It would have had areas dedicated to beloved characters including the White Rabbit and Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, as well as a section revolving around the Mad Hatter's tea party.
