    Bugs Bunny's Bustin' Out All Over Wile E. Coyote Production Cel (Warner Brothers, 1980). This television special premiered on CBS on 5/21/80. It featured three newly-animated Looney Tunes segments. One of the three new cartoons was a Chuck Jones-directed cartoon called "Soup or Sonic." This is an original, 12 field, hand-painted production cel of Wile E. Coyote in another scheme, to catch the Road Runner, gone bad. With the Road Runner on the opposite mountain, Wile E. decides to pole vault over. Of course, his pole goes into the ground, breaking the ledge away, and he comes falling down with a crumbling boulder. You can see this exact image in the cartoon at the 16:04 mark. Boulder, pole, and Wile E. have an image size of 8". This great image is hand-signed by the director of the cartoon, the legendary Chuck Jones (1912-2002). The cel is on a print background for presentation purposes. A Linda Jones seal is on the cel, and her COA is on the back of the frame. Matted with an opening of 12" x 9.5", in a Plexiglas-front frame measuring 21" x 18.5". Frame is sold as-is, cel condition is Very Good.
