    For Scent-imental Reasons Pepe Le Pew Production Cel (Warner Brothers, 1949). "I am not dead, no?" says a mildly surprised Pepe after falling into a bucket of blue paint. This original hand-inked hand-painted production cel is from the very first Academy Award-winning theatrical short for both Warner Brothers Studio and director Chuck Jones. You can see it around the 5:41 mark in this brilliant cartoon. The 2" x 2.25" image is on a 12 field cel marked 49 in the lower right corner, and is presented over a custom hand-painted background. Production cels from Warner Brothers' Golden Age are notoriously rare and cels from their first Oscar-winning short makes this a piece of Looney Tunes history. The cel shows minor handling and condition is Very Good.
