    Half-Fare Hare Bunny Production Cel on Background Signed by Mel Blanc (Warner Brothers, 1956/1963). "Come on Chattanooga Choo Choo!" says Bugs Bunny after he reads the news that there's been a bumper crop of carrots in Chattanooga. He hops a train and is visited by two hobos who resemble Ralph and Ed from The Honeymooners and hilarity ensues. This 1956 short was directed by Robert McKimson (1910 - 1977) and written by Tedd Pierce (1906 - 1972). You can see this image at the start of the short around the 0:36 mark. The hand-inked, hand-painted full-figure image measuring 5" tall is on a 12 field production cel signed by Mel Blanc (1906 - 1989), and on it he writes "Eh, what's Up Doc?" As a bonus, the cel is over a hand-painted 12 field Warner Brothers production background from the 1963 Friz Freleng-directed short Chili Weather. The piece shows minor handling; otherwise, condition is Very Good.
