    Honeyland Production Cel and Painted Background (Harmon-Ising/MGM, 1935). This is a rare piece of cartoon history: an original hand-inked, hand-painted production cel from a Harmon/Ising-produced "Happy Harmonies" cartoon, done for MGM. It was released on 10/19/35. This is the scene where the cute cartoon bees are gathering pollen shaken from a flower and carting it off. You can see this scene around the 2:00 mark. It is a full 12 field cel, placed on a production background from another cartoon. This early MGM setup is in a mat measuring 20.5" x 17.5" with a mat opening of 11" x 9". Harmon/Ising production art from this era is considered very rare. Minor handling wear. In Very Good condition.
