    Peanuts - Here's to You, Charlie Brown: 50 Great Years Lucy and Charlie Brown Football Gag Animation Drawings with 1 of 1 Cel (Bill Melendez, 2000). This television documentary was the final animated Peanuts project Charles Schultz (1922 - 2000) worked on before his passing; it was also the last Peanuts special to air on CBS. Here's a special treat for fans of Lucy's football pranks with Charlie Brown -- one of the most beloved bits from the specials. From this 50th anniversary special come two original 12 field animation drawings of Lucy with the ball, and Charlie Brown as he approaches it. These are graphite drawings; Lucy's figure size is about 3", while Charlie Brown measures 3.5". Both pieces are signed by Bill Melendez (1916 - 2008). To make this lot even more wonderful, Mr. Melendez created a one of one hand-inked, hand-painted cel of the scene! Wow! The cel is matted with an opening of 11.5" x 8.5", framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 19.5" x 16.5". The frame is sold as-is. Drawings have very light handling wear. Overall condition is Fine.
