    Peanuts The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show Snoopy Production Cels Sequence of 5 with Key Master Background and Animation Drawings Group of 6 (Bill Melendez, c. 1983). Snoopy's first appearance as the World War I Flying Ace was in the Peanuts comic strip from 10/10/65, which saw him climb on top of his doghouse (claiming it was a Sopwith Camel biplane) to do battle with the Red Baron. The World War I Flying Ace is one of the many fantasy identities that Snoopy adopted during the fifty-year run of the Peanuts comic strip. Offered in this lot is a fantastic progression piece with a Key Master background and matching animation drawings. The cels in this piece are positioned in sequence on the background in a way that shows the character's actions and movements. The piece consists of five Snoopy cels, one smoke effects cel on a hand-painted Key Master pan background of 22.5." Included are five Snoopy animation drawings plus one smoke effects drawing. The cels were hand-painted on 12 field acetate. Drawings were rendered in graphite and color pencil on 12 field animation paper. Mild handling wear. Condition is Very Good.
