    Betty Boop Publicity Cel Setup Signed by Grim Natwick (Fleischer, 1980s). While working under the direction of Max Fleischer, animator Grim Natick (1890-1990) created the original design for Betty Boop. She was to become a friend of the studios character Bimbo the Dog. Grim went on to do some of the early animation on Betty Boop in the 1930's, prior to working at Walt Disney Studios. A fun, hand-painted merchandise or publicity cel of Betty, placed on a hand-painted unknown cartoon production background that works well with the cel. Betty is sure looking like a spy! The real prize here is that the cel is hand-signed by her creator, Grim Natwick. A large signature, next to Betty, who stands 7" tall. Matted to an overall size of 16" x 13" and in Fine condition.
