    Bugs Bunny's Looney Christmas Tales Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner Production Cels Set of 2 (Warner Brothers, 1979). "Road Runners hate snow!" Wile E. Coyote reads this and makes his plan to divert the Road Runner to a frozen lake, or snowy mountain top. This is an amazing pair of 12 field hand-painted production cels of both Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner. These are from the Holiday Special that premiered on 11/27/79 on CBS-TV. It had three newly-animated stories within the program. These are from the Wile E. and Road Runner short called "Freeze Frame." Road Runner (as seen slipping on ice in the short) is a great full-figure image measuring 5". It can be seen on-screen around the 11:46 mark. The Wile E. cel is the classic outstretched-arms image of him chasing the Road Runner, as seen in many shorts. Unbelievably cool 9" image. Both cels are on print backgrounds for presentation purposes; they are in one common mat, measuring 32" x 15.5", with opening sizes of 12" x 10". A clipped Chuck Jones (1912-2002) signature, on paper, from a 1990s Gallery appearance, is included in the lot. One of the best Wile E. and Road Runner production cel images we have seen to date! Very Good condition.
