    City Slickers Title Sequence Production Cels and Drawings Group of 6 (Kurtz and Friends, 1991). "Hi Curly, kill anyone today?" asks Billy Crystal. "Day ain't over yet!" replies Jack Palance, in his Academy Award-winning role. This is a rare sequence of three opening title animation cels from the hit comedy, City Slickers. The film was ranked number 86 out of 100 in the AFI poll, "100 Years...100 Laughs". Though the film was produced by Columbia, the title animation was entrusted to Kurtz and Friends Studios and was directed by Bob Kurtz himself. Great three cel sequence of the bull and cowboy in their "lasso dance" routine. The images all measure at 5" high. The three corresponding animation drawings are also included. Each cel and drawing is hand-signed by Mr. Kurtz. Opening title animation art is very hard to find. In Fine condition.
