    Play It Again, Charlie Brown/Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown Production Cel Setup and Pan Production Background (Bill Melendez, 1971/1975). Here's a nice pair of animated Peanuts production items that work well together. From Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown comes this original hand-painted production background of the kids' classroom at Birchwood School. The special first aired on 1/28/75. The background measures an impressive 30" x 10.5", and is marked BG 106. Placed on the background is an outstanding hand-inked, hand-painted 12 field production 2-cel setup of Charlie Brown, Lucy and Schroeder. It comes from the first TV Special of the 1970s, Play It Again, Charlie Brown, which premiered on 3/28/71, and prominently featured Schroeder. The setup is from the scene where the kids are getting ready for the PTA Program that Schroeder will close. Great image sizes of 3" - 4". Hand-inked production cels of Peanuts characters and production backgrounds of this era are considered very rare. Both background and production cels all take place in the Birchwood School setting. Minor handling and edge wear. Very Good condition.
