    Fritz the Cat Synagogue Color Model Cel and Drawing with Master Painted Background (Ralph Bakshi, 1972). When Fritz's bathtub party is busted, he seeks refuge in a nearby synagogue. Here is a rare 12 field 2-cel color model cel of the three rabbi scholars who appear in the beginning of this scene. Sharp-eyed fans of the film will notice that the color of the robes are different, going from white with blue stripes to blue with purple stripes. Part of the Master background is painted on the second cel, with the Judy Garland "Screen Romances" magazine on the backing board. Image area of the three rabbis is approximately 10.75" x 7.25". The nicely detailed matching animation drawing, done in graphite and blue pencil, is also included. Good to Very Good condition, with a fold crease in the lower portion of the top cel.
