    Martian Through Georgia Saturn Production Cel and Key Master Background (Warner Brothers, 1962). "Once upon a time, way out in space... WAY WAY out in space..." This highly stylized "Martian-themed" theatrical short was co-directed by Chuck Jones, Abe Levitow and Maurice Noble. This is superb hand-painted cel on its Key Master background of Saturn. It can be seen at the 2:35 mark in the short, after the Martian has taken off in his space ship. The background is marked Scene 17 with production number 1556. An overlay cel of the Saturn Ring is trimmed and applied to the hand-painted background, which has a nice Maurice Noble feel. Matted with an opening of 12" x 10", with an overall size of 19" x 16.5". Slight scuff on the cover cel, otherwise Fine condition; mat has some contact marks.
