    Cat's Paw Sylvester and Junior Production/Color Model Cel Setup (Warner Brothers, 1959/c. 1980s-90s). "Sufferin' succotash! With all the merit badges he could go for, my bright little son has to pick bird stalking!" says Sylvester in the opening lines from this Sylvester and Junior short. This is a great hand-inked, hand-painted production cel of Sylvester as he is throwing his rope up to go get a look at the Dwarf Eagle, higher up the mountain. Great large image of 6". A modern-day model cel of Junior has been added to the production cel for presentation purposes. The Sylvester-only cel is from the Robert McKimson-directed short that was released on 8/15/59. You can see this cel around the 2:16 mark. Both cels are on a custom hand-painted background made for presentation purposes. Matted with an opening of 12" x 10" and framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 22.25" x 19.75". Warner Brothers production cels from this era are extremely hard to locate. Fine condition.
