    Birdy and the Beast Tweety Bird Limited Edition Cel 436/500 (Warner Brothers, 1989). Birdy and the Beast was a Bob Clampett-directed Merrie Melodies short released in 1944. In the story Tweety wanders into a Cat's mouth and lights the cat's tongue on fire by putting a match on it. In this lot we have a fantastic Limited Edition cel from that scene. The piece is hand-painted on acetate, paired with a copy/print of the background, and in a frame of 20" x 18". The frame has Plexiglas with a mat opening that measures 12" x 10". Included is a Certificate of Authenticity issued by Warner Brothers Gallery. The cel has a Bob Clampett seal in the lower left and hand numbered 436/500 in the lower right. Condition is Very Good.
