    "Misguided Muscle" Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote Signed Limited Edition Cel #125/250 (Warner Brothers, 1999). "BEEP BEEP!" The team of Chuck Jones and Maurice Noble made quite an impact with their collaborations featuring Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner. In 1999, they collaborated once again on this piece. Chuck Jones did the original drawing, with layout and art direction by Maurice Noble. The ending result was a hand-painted limited edition cel that they titled "Misguided Muscle." This is a large pan cel, oversized and very impressive. Great large images, with sizes of 11" x 13". Wile E.'s "Acme Leg Muscle Vitamins" sticking out of his "back pocket" is a great Jones gag. The pan cel is on a print background for presentation purposes. This special cel, limited to just 250 pieces, is hand-signed by BOTH Mr. Chuck Jones (1912 - 2002) and Mr. Maurice Noble (1911 - 2001). This cel has been sold out for 20 years (!) and is now very hard to find. Matted with an opening of 32" x 13" and framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 40" x 20". A Linda Jones seal is on the cel and Linda Jones COA is on back of frame. One of the single most impressive Road Runner/Wile E. pieces ever made. Frame is sold as-is, artwork condition is Very Good.
