    Description

    Barney Bear Production Cel (MGM, 1950s). Barney Bear was created by Rudolf Ising, some say as a parody of actor Wallace Beery. He was a reigning regular on the MGM animation roster in the 1940s and 1950s. This rare 12 -field hand-painted production cel features an image of Barney with a cup of coffee and newspaper, an image measuring approximately 6" x 4". The notation "#33" is written in the bottom right corner of the cel. In Fair condition with cracking in his arm and body, paint separation, and slight paint loss.
