    Alabama Power "Louie the Lightning Bug" TV Commercial Color Model Cel Setup (Kurtz and Friends, c. 1980s). Louie the Lightning Bug (voiced by the great Jack Sheldon, of Schoolhouse Rock fame) stars in this original hand-inked, hand-painted 12 field 2-cel Color Model setup. Kurtz and Friends Animation did a number of these "Play It Safe Around Electricity" PSA spots, which combined live action and the animated Louie. This is a great piece, especially if you grew up in Alabama, watching these fun (and informative) spots! Louie has an overall image size of 7.5" x 8.25". Background is a printed black lightweight board. The top effects cel has been hand-signed by animator/director Bob Kurtz. Very Good condition, with minor handling wear.
