DescriptionPorky's Last Stand Daffy Duck Production Cel (Warner Brothers, 1940). In this black and white Bob Clampett-directed short, Daffy Duck is the dishwasher in Porky Pig's roadside diner. Here he shows his unique way to dry dishes, in a rare original hand-inked, hand-painted production cel. Daffy stands 5" tall with an elongated neck and screwy expression (well, he is Daffy, you know); see it in the short at the 1:15 mark. The cel is signed by Leon Schlesinger, who adds, "This is an original painting I used in 'Looney Tunes' and 'Merrie Melodies.'" Mr. Schlesinger (1884 - 1949) was the powerhouse producer of the Warner Brother animated shorts from 1930 to 1944, and he began the short-lived WB Animation Art program where cels like this were trimmed, laminated with color paper backgrounds, and sold through galleries. The cel is matted with an opening of 10.5" x 8.5". It is glass-front framed to 18.5" x 16.5" and in Fine condition.
