    Description

    Peanuts - Met Life Television Commercial Painted Background with Woodstock Production Cel and Animation Drawing (Bill Melendez, c. 1980s). "New family members means new responsibilities and new needs for life and health insurance protection... Get Met, it pays!" says the narrator in this Woodstock and Snoopy animated television commercial. These characters were used extensively in the 1980s for Metropolitan Life Insurance commercials. Woodstock having babies was used heavily. This is an outstanding Dean Spille hand-painted pan production background of Woodstock's home/nest. The background alone is a beautiful piece of artwork, painted in gouache on pan background board measuring 29" x 10.5". A 12 field production cel of Woodstock with its matching animation drawing comes with this magnificent background painting of his (or is it her?) home. Woodstock was actually named after the 1969 Woodstock Music Festival that is celebrating its 50th birthday in 2019. Minor handling and edge wear. Overall condition is Good.
