    Description

    Hare-um Scare-um John Sourpuss Production Cel (Warner Brothers, 1939). In only the third appearance of the prototype rabbit who would become Bugs Bunny, he faced a hunter as a protagonist. Sound familiar? John Sourpuss decided to hunt his own meals as meat prices were too expensive for him. But he didn't bargain on getting a belly fulla this hair-brained hare! The hunter stands 4.5" tall in an exaggerated pose created on a hand-inked, hand-painted production cel. It is signed by famed producer Leon Schlesinger and noted "This is an original painting I used in: "Looney Tunes" and "Merry Melodies", © Leon Schlesinger". This was a Merry Melodies cartoon. This cel is glass front framed to 17.5" x 13.5". The background has a bit of stain on the left side; however the cel is otherwise in Fine condition.
