    My Neighbor Totoro Title Sequence Production Cel (Studio Ghibli, 1988). "Hey, let's go! Hey, let's go! I'm happy as can be! Let's go walking, you and me. Ready, set, come on, let's go!" Fantastically rare and unforgettably iconic, presented is a hand-painted original production cel from the title sequence of the Studio Ghibli masterpiece My Neighbor Totoro, seen within the first 30 seconds of the film! An important installment not only in anime history, but in the history of animation as a whole, Roger Ebert said, " would never have won its worldwide audience just because of its warm heart. It is also rich with human comedy in the way it observes the two remarkably convincing, lifelike little girls... It is a little sad, a little scary, a little surprising and a little informative, just like life itself. It depends on a situation instead of a plot, and suggests that the wonder of life and the resources of imagination supply all the adventure you need." A must-have piece from the essential title, the painted image area measures 7.75" x 1.25" on the 14" x 10.25" cel, and the cel is numbered A37 in the upper right corner. The cel featuring nine little Totoro characters shows very little handling and edge wear, and the condition is Very Good.
