DescriptionPeanuts "Hey, Linus, Guess Who's Back" Limited Edition Cel and Print with Painted Background #1/30 (United Feature Syndicate/Linda Jones, 2018). It's long been one of Snoopy's favorite pastimes – catch a sleepy Linus sucking his thumb and holding his Security Blanket, grab that blanket, and take off running! It leaves Linus flying through the air, hanging on for dear life! This classic Peanuts moment has been nicely preserved in this fantastic hand-painted pan cel. This is a limited-edition cel, but one with a BIG difference – it's #1 out of a scant edition of only 30! And since it is #1, the background isn't a print (as #2 through 30 have), but it's the hand-painted original! Wow! The cel also includes a line art print of the aftermath, with Lucy looking on at her dazed brother laying flat on the ground, while a grinning Snoopy retains the blanket! The paper print is signed by the artist, Larry Liechliter, who perfectly captures the style of the strip's creator, the late Charles M. Schulz. The two items are matted together; the cel has an opening of 23.5" x 9.5", while the print opening is 11" x 9.5". The items are framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 30" x 24.75". The frame is sold as-is. A Linda Jones Letter of Authenticity is included on back of the frame. Fine condition.
