    "Bugs Bunny - The Showdown" Limited Edition Cel Signed by Friz Freleng (Warner Brothers, 1989). With Warner Brothers Studios throwing away their entire archive of production art in the early 1960s, Friz Freleng began doing original artwork and having cels created from his original drawings. This is an early hand-painted Friz Freleng limited edition cel titled "The Showdown." It was a small edition of only 300 unnumbered pieces, and has remained out of print for 30 years. Bugs Bunny plays a gun slinging cowboy here, with a nice full-figure size of 7". The cel has a Warner Brothers seal and is hand-signed by the artist, animation legend, Mr. Friz Freleng (1906 - 1995). Collecting his pre-1990s limited editions is becoming harder and harder as these editions were much smaller. Matted with an opening of 12" x 10", and framed with glass for an overall size of 19" x 16.5". Carrots in his holster -- what a great gag! Frame is sold as-is; cel condition is Very Good.
