    Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show Production Cel Setup, Animation Drawings, and Master Painted Background Group (Bill Melendez, 1983). Snoopy donned his dog bowl as his hat in the feature-length film Snoopy Come Home (1972). He does so again in this outstanding series of four hand-painted production cels that has Snoopy thirsty in the desert. Is he looking for Spike? The four sequenced cels are on a Master pan production background of the desert, painted by the great Dean Spille. Master setups on backgrounds for any Peanuts animation are rare. The background is 18" x 9.5". Snoopy is a nice full figure image of 3". As a bonus, the original 12 field layout drawing to this scene is included, as are the four matching animation drawings. This lot has four production cels, four production drawings, the layout drawing and the Master production background, for a total of 10 items! Minor handling, tape on border of cels and background. Very Good overall condition.
