    Description

    Nuts and Volts Production Background (Warner Brothers, 1964). After getting tired of chasing Speedy Gonzales around the house, Sylvester opts for a more modern approach to mouse catching by employing a new hi-tech security system with a robot. This is an original one-of-a-kind hand-painted production background/held image of the handbill that prompts Sylvester to "Let the machine do the work!" and it can be seen at the 1:32 mark. This was the very last theatrical cartoon directed by Friz Freleng at Warner Brothers studio. The artwork is attributed to background artist Tom O'Loughlin and is painted in gouache on 12 field background paper which is protected under a clear sheet of acetate. It is framed without glass and has a mat opening of 12" x 9" in a 24" x 20 frame. Condition is Very Good and the frame is sold as-is.
