    Peanuts Charlie Brown and Friends Color Model Cel on Production Background (Bill Melendez, 1970s). This is an original hand-inked, hand-painted color model cel of Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Sally, Linus, and Lucy. It's a rare five-character cel with full-figure images ranging in size from 1.5" to 2" tall. The cel is over a 12 field production background painted for a later Peanuts television special by the official background artist for Peanuts films, Dean Spille. It was for a walking scene and is marked BG 113 Sc 113 -126. The cel and background setup work wonderfully together. Melendez Studios moved to Xerography in the early '70s making hand-inked Peanuts cels highly desirable to collectors. The piece shows minor handling wear; otherwise condition is Very Good.
