    Description

    Hitch Hikers Production Cel and Key Master Background (Terrytoons, 1947). Rare 12 field hand-inked, hand-painted production cel from the Heckle and Jeckle cartoon where they hitch a ride with bank robber dog Chesty and his driver, Dimwit. Here's Chesty and Dimwit, as seen at about the 3:50 mark into this Connie Rasinski-directed short, which was released on 12/12/47. The cel is on its Key Master hand-painted production background; it's painted in gouache on 12 field top-peghole board. The painted area is 10" x 7", with "T435" written in the top left corner, and a Terrytoons stamp in the border by the middle peghole. One of the very few Key Master setups known to exist from an early Heckle and Jeckle short (this was just their tenth). Minor handling and edge wear. Very Good condition.
