Description"Acme Splatman" Wile E. Coyote Limited Edition Cel Signed by Chuck Jones 260/500 (Warner Bros, 1996). Inspired by the 1956 Chuck Jones-directed short, Gee Whiz-z-z-z-z-z-z is this extraordinary limited edition cel featuring "Eatius Birdius" aka Wile E. Coyote. The cel is entitled "Acme Splatman" and was created using original drawings and source material by Chuck Jones (1912 - 2002). Wile E. Coyote often obtains complex, ludicrous contraptions from mail-order company, ACME, which he hopes will help him catch the Roadrunner. The devices invariably fail in spectacular fashion as we see in this piece. The cel was hand-painted on 16 field acetate and paired with a background print for presentation purposes. The piece is numbered 260/500 and hand-signed by legendary animator, Chuck Jones. Enclosed in a Plexiglas-fronted frame of 25" x 22" with a matboard aperture of 15.5" x 12". Frame sold as-is. Cel condition is Fine.
