    It Was a Short Summer, Charlie Brown Multi-Character Production Cel Setup with Key Master Pan Background (Bill Melendez, 1969). "Mine's already finished, I wrote it during study period," says Violet to Charlie Brown when he asks when she will write her 500-word summer essay homework. Charlie Brown replies, "Violet you drive me crazy!" This short, written by Charles Schulz, was only the sixth animated TV special for Charlie Brown and company. It also was the final Peanuts TV Special shown in the 1960s, premiering on the CBS Network on 9/27/69. This is an outstanding hand-inked hand-painted production cel setup of Charlie Brown with Linus, Sally, Lucy, and Violet. This 4-cel setup is on its Key Master hand-painted production pan background painted by Dean Spille. You can see this at about the 3:11 mark into the film. Key Master setups from the 1960s with five characters are considered very rare. Great full-figure images of 2" - 3". This pan background measures 10" x 19". Tape on border. Fine condition.
