    Description

    It's Nice to Have a Mouse Around the House Speedy Gonzales Production Cel (Warner Brothers, 1965). This is an original hand-inked, hand-painted production cel of Speedy Gonzales and it's from the first Warner Brother cartoon to pair Speedy with Daffy Duck. There are also brief cameo appearances by Granny and Sylvester. The short is also unique in that it was was co-directed by Friz Freleng (1906 - 1995) and his longtime layout artist Hawley Pratt (1911 - 1999). This is an ideal image of Speedy as he is about to start yelling "Arriba, Arriba" into exterminator Daffy's stethoscope which can be seen around the 2:29 mark. The full-figure image of Speedy measures 3" tall on a 12 field cel over a 10.5" x 16" hand-painted production background from an unknown cartoon. The combination of the two works very well. The piece shows minor handling wear; otherwise condition is Very Good.
