    Porco Rosso Production Cel Setup (Studio Ghibli, 1992). "I told you that we shouldn't have taken them all. Ahhh! My nose!" The little girls kidnapped by the Mamma Aiuto Gang are completely unfazed by their situation in this hilarious and charming hand-painted original production cel from Hayao Miyazaki's Porco Rosso. Seen at the 6:14 mark of the film, this setup appears in the humorous opening scenes in which Porco Rosso shows off his aerial dogfighting skills. Highly acclaimed, Porco Rosso is an early example of Miyazaki's love of early aviation, and Robert Pardi of TV Guide stated, "Miyazaki pays homage to Hollywood's wartime adventure films in this masterwork built around the adventures of a high-flying pig... This animated feature's visual splendor is matched by a droll screenplay that takes a sty-side view of heroism." A wonderful piece from a Studio Ghibli essential, the image measures 9" x 8" on 13.75" x 9" cels. It shows minor handling and edge wear with very light scuffing/debris, and the condition is Very Good.
