    Description

    The Wrong Number/Rhapsody Rabbit Limited Edition Cel Animation Art #425/500 (Warner Brothers/Virgil Ross Masters Collection, 1992). "Who? Franz Liszt? Never heard of 'em!" So answers Bugs as his piano concerto is interrupted by a phone call (from inside his piano), in the classic 1946 Merrie Melodies cartoon Rhapsody Rabbit, directed by Friz Freleng. This hand-painted limited edition cel of Bugs on the telephone was created by using animator Virgil Ross' original drawings from the cartoon; these innovative Sequential Limited Editions were instant sell-outs. The cel is signed by Virgil Ross (1907-1996), and is matted and framed with Plexiglas over a printed background. The mat opening measures 15.75" x 12.5". The four figures stand about 7" each, and the frame measures 23" x 19.5". There's a little wear to the frame, but the art is in Excellent condition. Includes a Certificate of Authenticity attached to the back of the frame.
