    "The Last Claw" Limited Edition Cel Signed by Virgil Ross Artist Proof #26/50 (Warner Brothers, 1996). Here is a wonderful limited edition cel signed by legendary cartoonist and animator Virgil Ross (1907 - 1996). The piece is based on the 1948 Merrie Melodies cartoon short, I Taw a Puddy Tat, directed by Friz Freleng and featuring the incredible voice talents of Mel Blanc (1908 - 1989). This limited edition cel captures a classic confrontation between Tweety, Sylvester, and Hector, and the cel was hand-inked and hand-painted on acetate using original artwork by Virgil Ross. The cel is hand-numbered 26/50 in this extremely rare artist proof edition, and it signed by Mr. Ross himself. Paired with the cel is a lithographic reproduction on acid-free paper of the original background. The piece comes with a Warner Brothers/Virgil Ross seal, and it is framed under glass with a matboard aperture of 9.75" x 17.25" and an overall frame size of 19" x 25". The frame is sold as is, and the overall condition is Very Good.
