    Boy Meets Dog Prosecuting Attorney Elf Production Cel (Walter Lantz, 1938). This Walter Lantz-directed and produced short was made as a promotional film for Ipana toothpaste. It was intended for theatrical release, but never shown; Castle Films purchased it for the home market, and it's since been included in a number of Public Domain video cartoon releases. Here's an original hand-inked, hand-painted 12 field 2-peghole production cel of the green-skinned Prosecuting Elf that appears in the fantasy scene where Bobby's cruel father is pulled into the images on Bobby's wall after denying him a dog. The figure size is 6". The number 5 appears in the upper right corner. Small amount of paint loss in his mouth and lower lip, with some minor paint cracks. Very Good condition.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
