    Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol Despicables Production Cel Setups and Drawings Group of 14 (UPA, 1962). A group of six hand-painted cel setups of the "Despicables". The Despicables consisted of the Pawnbroker, the Charwoman, the Undertaker, and the Laundress, and they have a great song sequence in the film titled "We're Despicable." The animation was done by Gerard Baldwin and the lot includes setups #1 -- all four in a song sequence with flowers -- this is a three cel setup; #2 -- three of the Despicables going into the Pawn Shop (a two cel setup); #3 -- a shocked Undertaker (a two cel setup); #4 -- the Charwoman and Pawnbroker (note that the Pawnbroker cel has a fold in the middle, away from the image -- a two cel set up); #5 -- the Charwoman and Pawnbroker (a two cel setup); and #6 -- Pawnbroker, Undertaker, and Charwoman (a three cel setup). Not all setups match and there is minor paint separation. Eight miscellaneous animation drawings of the Despicables are also included in the lot. All have minor handling and edge wear and average Very Good condition.
