    Description

    The New Woody Woodpecker Show Chilly Willy and Walrus Production Cel Setup and Studio Production Background (Walter Lantz, c. 1960s). Chilly Willy encounters a big sad walrus in this original Master setup. The adorable little penguin made his debut in 1953 and some of his first cartoons were directed by Tex Avery. He was an instant hit for Walter Lantz Studios and ultimately was featured in 50 theatrical cartoons between 1953 and 1971. This is an original hand-inked, hand-painted trimmed 2-cel setup of Chilly Willy and a walrus who together measure 6.5" x 9.5". The production cels are over an original hand-painted trimmed Master production background with Walter Lantz stamp in the lower right corner. It's a remarkable composition featuring Willy in a polar setting. Minor handling wear and the cels are stapled at top to background by studio. In Very Good condition.
