    Description

    Porky the Rainmaker Porky Pig Production Cel Signed by Chuck and Tom McKimson (Warner Brothers, 1936/1968). An original hand-painted colorization cel of Porky Pig. Early black & white Warner Brothers cartoons were converted into color for the TV audience in 1968-early 1970s. These are some of the only cels from these early shorts that exist. This one of Porky Pig is special in that it is hand-signed by both Charles McKimson (1914 - 1999) and Tom McKimson (1907 - 1998). Both brothers at one time worked in the unit run by their brother Bob McKimson. Tom went on to do a great deal of artwork for Western Publishing's comic book division. The image of Porky measures 5", and the cel is in Fine condition, matted and framed to 18" x 15.25". Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Robert McKimson Jr. From the McKimson Collection.
