    Magoo Slept Here Mr. Magoo Production Cel on Key Master Background (UPA, 1953). "You call me a liar in my own home? Nobody can call me a liar in my own home!" Optically challenged Mr. Magoo believes a tax assessor is an antiques buyer, then compounds the problem when a real customer arrives. This is an original hand-inked and hand-painted production cel setup of Magoo and the tax assessor in full-figure measuring 6.5" and 5" respectively and are from the 3:34 mark in this short, directed by Pete Burness and written by the great Tedd Pierce. The 2-cel setup is over an original hand-painted Key Master background painted in gouache on 12 field background board and marked production 50-30. This is one of the nicest and most complete Magoo setups we have ever seen. There is significant paint loss on the tax assessor's face and cracks in his suit. Condition is Very Good. From the Rev Chaney Archives.
