    Peanuts Life is a Circus, Charlie Brown Snoopy and Circus Wagon Color Model/Production Cel (Bill Melendez, 1980). In the 20th Charlie Brown/Peanuts television special, Snoopy joins "Polly's Poodles" circus act and becomes Hugo the Great. This CBS-TV special first aired on 10/24/1980, and went on to win an Emmy. Here's is an original hand-painted 12 field color model/production cel of Snoopy, now held "captive" as the circus moves on to the next town. This is a great image of Snoopy, as he peers out from behind the circus wagon's barred window; overall image size is 7.75" x 6.5". The background is a print, added for presentation purposes. Cel condition is Fine with very minor handling.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
