Description"Little Orphan Airedale" Charlie Dog and Porky Pig Limited Edition Cel #37/47 (Warner Brothers, 2002). This hand-painted cel, limited to a scant 47 copies (this is #37) was inspired by such Chuck Jones-directed shorts as Little Orphan Airedale (1947) and Often an Orphan (1949). In these cartoons, homeless mutt Charlie Dog does everything he can to get in Porky's good graces. Here, Charlie is ready to move in on Porky; this occurs at the 4:00 mark in Little Orphan Airedale when Charlie pretends to pack his bags (plus a table lamp) and leave, only to return a few seconds later with bags and lamp in hand. The cel includes a Linda Jones seal in the lower left, and a Chuck Jones (1912 - 2002) estate signature to the right. A loose background print is included for presentation purposes. The cel includes a Linda Jones COA, and is in Fine condition.
