    Peanuts - It Was a Short Summer, Charlie Brown Charlie Brown and Friends Production Cel Setup (Bill Melendez, 1969). "When we arrived, the first thing the boys did was issue a swim challenge" writes Lucy about the boys vs girls Summer Camp experience in this the sixth Peanuts television special. Here is a hand-inked, hand-painted 12 field production cel setup of Schroeder, Lucy, Peppermint Patty, and Frieda laughing at Charlie Brown after his losing effort against the girls. You can see this at about the 20:19 mark into the show. Five full-figure Charles Schulz characters make up this 3-cel setup, which is over a Master hand-painted production background from Bill Melendez Studio and attributed to Dean Spille. The piece shows minor handling; otherwise, condition is Very Good.
