    Description

    A Charlie Brown Christmas Lucy, Charlie Brown, and Snoopy Production Cel Sequence and Pan Key Master Background Setup (Bill Melendez, 1965). "Before you begin, I must ask that you pay in advance. Five cents please!" says Lucy to Charlie Brown as they meet at her "The Doctor is In" Psychiatric Help booth. This is a series of eight sequenced hand-inked and hand-painted production cels of Lucy, Charlie Brown, and Snoopy with the Psychiatric Help booth in the snow. The cels are grouped into four scenes on the Key Master hand-painted production background. This pan background is approximately 45" x 9". The background also includes hand-painted Key Master production overlays of the White Birch tree. The figures are 2" to 3". The progression shows Charlie Brown and Lucy meeting and ends with them walking away from her booth, and Snoopy walking by to decorate his doghouse in a way over-the-top fashion. This historic Christmas TV special featuring the Peanuts characters created by Charles Schulz won both an Emmy and a Peabody Award. It premiered on 12/9/65 on CBS, sponsored by Coke, with a magnificent jazz score by Vince Guaraldi and no laugh track. It was finished just ten days before airing. One of the most amazing Key Master setups we have ever seen! Framed with Plexiglas and matted with an opening of approximately 45" x 8.5". Fine condition.
