    Hoppity Hooper Scene Cel with Painted Production Background (Jay Ward, c. 1970s). This show, featuring Hoppity Hooper, Waldo, and Fillmore, premiered on 9/26/64 on ABC-TV and ran for three seasons. This is a rare hand-inked, hand-painted Scene cel of the show's three main characters. What really makes this one stand out is the original Jay Ward Studios trimmed hand-painted production background behind the cel. Most all Jay Ward Studios production cels were done in Mexico, and only a few were saved; most were cleaned and reused. The Dudley Do-Right Emporium Store located at 8200 Sunset Blvd. in West Hollywood created and sold new Scene cels of all the Jay Ward characters. When the store first opened in 1971, they would trim original production backgrounds and put them behind the Scene cels. This was only done in the early years of the store, which remained open until 2005. Cel is in a mat measuring 13" x 11" with a mat opening of 9" x 7". The trimmed Jay Ward Studio hand-painted production background is approximately 10" x 8". Scene cels with Jay Ward production backgrounds are considered very rare! Minor handling wear. Very Good condition.
