    Madeline Miss Clavel and Students Production Cel Setup (UPA, 1952). "In an old house in Paris that was covered in vine, lived twelve little girls in two straight lines." This is how this Robert Cannon-directed Jolly Frolics cartoon Madeline opens up. This short was released on 11/27/52. A young Bill Melendez did a great deal of the animation and the story was co-written by Bill Scott. This is a rare hand-inked, hand-painted production 2-cel setup of Miss Clavel and the classmates, on a sheet that reads in bottom right corner "Original by UPA." Cels are stapled in each corner. The setup is matted with an opening of 12" x 9.5"; overall mat size is 20.5" x 16". A classic 1950s UPA stylized short, nominated for an Academy Award. Minor handling wear. Very Good condition.
