    Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote "Acme Rocket" Limited Edition Cel AP #12/25 Frames With Original Drawing by Chuck Jones (Warner Brothers, 1992). Beep Beep! This is a great hand-painted Limited Edition cel of Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote entitled "Acme Rocket." In the Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote cartoons, Wile E. was always using Acme products to try to catch his elusive prey. Chuck Jones began creating hand-painted limited edition cels of his best-loved characters in their most famous scenes, due to most all Warner Brothers production cels being tossed out in the early 1960s. The cel was released in 1992 and was an almost instant sell-out; in fact, it has been sold out for 25 years. The Chuck Jones hand-painted limited editions were created from his original drawings. This is an unheard of Final Chuck Jones original drawing for "Acme Rocket." This is the published original artwork, matted along with the Artist Proof #12 (of only 25) hand-painted Limited Edition cel. Both the published original drawing and the cel are hand-signed by animation legend Mr. Chuck Jones (1912-2002). The cel includes a Linda Jones seal; COAs for both the drawing and cel are on the reverse of the frame. Mat openings are 10" x 12", while the overall frame size is 34" x 18". Finding the Chuck Jones published original artwork with the matching hand-painted cel is very rare. Fine condition.
