Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd "Rabbit Seasoning" Limited Edition Cel AP #17/25 Framed with Original Drawing by Chuck Jones (Warner Brothers, 1991). Chuck Jones directed the Hunting Trilogy of three Bugs/Daffy/Elmer Fudd Duck Season-Rabbit Season gags in the early 1950s. The shorts were Rabbit Fire, Rabbit Seasoning and Duck Rabbit Duck. In Jerry Beck's great book, The 50 Greatest Cartoons, Rabbit Seasoning was voted #30. With most of the vintage classic short production cels thrown away in the 1960s, Chuck Jones would do drawings inspired by his great cartoons, and make hand-painted Limited Edition cels. In 1991, Mr. Jones released a hand-painted Limited Edition cel entitled "Rabbit Seasoning." It displays Hunter Elmer Fudd being confronted by a "Lana Turner" type decoy of Bugs Bunny in drag. This limited edition cel sold out over 25 years ago. Here is a rare Artist Proof edition of the cel, #17 of only 25. This long sold-out cel is framed with the actual published original Chuck Jones drawing that was used to create this limited edition. The drawing is in graphite on paper with images of 8" and 10". Both the published original drawing and Artist Proof hand-painted cel are signed by animation legend Mr. Chuck Jones (1912-2002). Mr Jones' final drawings done for his limited edition cels are rarely seen. There are original Linda Jones Enterprises COAs for both cel and drawing on reverse of frame. Fine condition.
