    "A Tribute to Termite Terrace - Gossamer" Hare-Raising Hare Signed Limited Edition Cel #30/200 (Warner Brothers, 1998).
    "Gee, I bet monsters are in-teresting" The 1946 Chuck Jones-directed Merrie melodies short Hare-Raising Hare was a hilarious Bugs Bunny cartoon that featured a "mad scientist" modeled after actor Peter Lorre. The scientist sends his big monster, covered from his head to his sneakers in orange fur, out to eat Bugs for dinner. The monster went unnamed here, but later became known as Gossamer; we fondly refer to him sometimes as "Gossie." In this superb hand-painted limited edition cel, Gossie has been made aware of a theater "audience" watching the cartoon; he screams "PEOPLE" before running off through the walls. In the original cartoon, the scene begins at about the 7:08 mark. The 10.5" x 12.5" cel is lightly affixed to a black paper backing. Signed by animation legend Chuck Jones (1912 - 2002) in the lower right, with a Linda Jones holograph seal in the lower left. Comes with a Linda Jones Certificate of Authenticity, and a photocopied Linda Jones letter that accompanied the cel when originally sold (and it's been sold out for well over 20 years). Excellent condition.
