    Description

    Cracked Ice Mr. Squeal Production Cel (Warner Brothers, 1938). "Say, who's heckling me?" asks Mr. Squeal, the W.C. Fields-type character skating on the ice. (The heckler turns out to be someone in the theater audience who is watching the cartoon!) This short was directed by Frank Tashlin and animated by Robert McKimson. It was released on 9/10/38. Here is a rare trimmed hand-inked, hand-painted production cel of Mr. Squeal, in a great image measuring 6". You can see this image around the 3:51 mark. The cel is on an airbrushed background done for presentation purposes. Studio sticker that reads "This is an original hand painting which I used in Merrie Melodies - Leon Schlesinger" is on back of the airbrushed board, which measures 12" x 9". Some tape on border, otherwise Very Good condition.
