    DuckTales Uncle Scrooge McDuck and Launchpad Production Cel Setup with Master Background (Walt Disney, 1987). DuckTales, featuring Scrooge McDuck, premiered on 9/18/87. This was the first Disney television animated series produced exclusively for syndication. It was a hit show and ran four initial seasons with over 100 episodes. This is an outstanding hand-painted production cel of both Uncle Scrooge and Launchpad. The cel is on a hand-painted Master DuckTales production background from the "Hero for Hire" episode, which ran on 10/8/87; it was the 19th episode in Season One. In it, Launchpad is tricked by the Beagle Boys into performing a series of bank robberies disguised as movie scenes. Great large full-figure images of 6" and 7". Background is 14" x 10". Bottom right corner has some background cut out, most likely for an overlay. Terrific two-character setup. Minor handling wear and tape on the border. Very Good condition.
