    "Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote: Acme Rocket" Limited Edition Cel Artist's Proof #15/25 (Warner Brothers, 1992). One of the most sought-after Chuck Jones limited editions was released in 1992, and titled "Acme Rocket." It is the classic image of Wile E. Coyote tying himself to the Acme Rocket in his doomed attempt to catch the Road Runner. The cel was created from an original Chuck Jones drawing and released in an edition of 500; it sold out ASAP over 25 years ago. This is a rare ARTIST PROOF Edition of this beloved hand-painted limited edition cel. Only 25 Artist Proofs were made and this is number 15. The great cel is matted with an opening of 11.5" x 10" and framed using Plexiglas for an overall size of 21.5" x 19". The cel is hand-signed by Chuck Jones (1912 - 2002). The cel has a Linda Jones seal on the cel and a Linda Jones COA on the back of the frame. Frame is sold as-is. Cel condition is Very Good.
