    Bully for Bugs Bugs Bunny Production Cel (Warner Brothers, 1953). "What a gulli-bull!" Bugs has fun as a bullfighter in Mexico, after being sidelined from his trip to the Coachella Valley ("...and the big carrot festival, therein") in this classic Chuck Jones-directed short, which was first shown in theaters on 8/8/1953. This is a rare hand-inked, hand-painted production cel of Bugs as seen at the 5:41 mark, just as he is saying "What an ultra-maroon!" Great full-figure image of Bugs in his matador suit, with a figure size of 6". The background is a matched print, added for presentation purposes. The cel is matted with an opening of 11.25" x 8.5" in a Plexiglas-front frame measuring 21.75" x 18.75". The frame is sold as-is. Fine 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.
