    A Charlie Brown Christmas Limited Edition Cel Set of 2 Artist's Proof AP3/15 (Bill Melendez, c. 1990s). One of the most enduring things about this classic animated TV special was the jazz-inspired music of the late Vince Guaraldi. No scene conveys that more than when Schroeder is playing on his piano with Lucy listening, and then Snoopy sneaks up and jumps on the piano to go into a full-out "Snoopy Dance." This is a rare hand-inked, hand-painted limited edition cel set of two of that scene. Each cel is on a print background for presentation purposes. Both cels feature the Charles Schulz-created characters of Schroeder, Lucy and Snoopy, with great images of 3" to 4". The first cel is hand-signed by the late Bill Melendez (1916-2008). These were part of the studio's "Classic Animated Moments" series of cels. This is a rare Artist Proof edition, #3 of only 15 pieces. A Studio seal is on one of the cels. Fine condition.
