    Gulliver's Travels Gabby and King Little Production Cel Setup and Key Master Background (Max Fleischer, 1939). "I'm trying to tell you there's a giant on the beach! There's a giant on the beach! THERE'S A GIANT ON THE BEACH!" This is an outstanding hand-inked, hand-painted production cel setup of King Little and Gabby. King Little is in fear of war with King Bombo, while Gabby is trying to alert him about giant-sized Gulliver, who had just washed up on the beach. This rare production cel setup is on its Key Master hand-painted production background. You can see this scene around the 14:52 mark. Nice full figure images of 3" and 5". The stunning background features the King's throne. Matted with an opening of 14" x 11" and framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 24.5" x 23.5". An important piece of animation history from one of the earliest feature-length cartoons. Fine condition.
