    A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving Production Cel Setup on Key Master Background (Bill Melendez, 1973). This enduring Thanksgiving TV special premiered 45 years ago and has aired every year since. In this scene, a table and chairs are set up for the Thanksgiving dinner in the backyard. Charlie Brown pulls a chair out for Peppermint Patty, while Linus pulls a green lawn chair out for Marci. You can see this at about the 14:59 mark. This is a very rare hand-inked, hand-painted, 12 field production 3 cel setup on its Key Master production background painted by Dean Spille. The characters stand approximately 4" tall. This was the tenth Peanuts CBS TV special and it went on to win an Emmy. The cel has an unsubstantiated Charles M. Schulz signature on it. It should be noted, Key Masters for this era of Peanuts specials are extremely rare. Condition is Fine.
