    "Michigan J. Frog" Limited Edition Cel Artist's Proof #AP 19/25 (Warner Brothers/Chuck Jones, 1980). "Jump, hop, up to Michigan Rag!" Chuck Jones began doing hand-painted limited editions in 1977. With most of the Warner Brothers production cels thrown out, he began doing drawings that were used to make Limited Editions. The very early ones from this program are almost impossible to find. This is the fourth hand-painted limited edition Chuck Jones produced, called "Michigan J. Frog." It was released in 1980 in an edition of only 50. It sold out 37 years ago. Here is a rare Artist Proof Edition of that piece from the Chuck Jones Archives. Great image of 10". The cel has the Linda Jones seal and is hand-signed by Chuck Jones (1912-2002). Mat opening is 9" x 12" while the Plexiglas-front frame is 18" x 21". A Linda Jones COA is on back of frame. Very rare! Fine condition.
