    Cap'n Crunch and Crew Publicity Cel and Studio Painted Background (Jay Ward, c. 1960's/70's). Ahoy, Kids! Here is an original hand-inked, hand-painted publicity cel of Cap'n Crunch with his entire crew: Carlyle, Brunhilde, Alfie, Dave, and Seadog. Plus there's a new member added to the group, a polar bear in a fur coat waving a "Cap'n Crunch's Frozen Delight" flag. The cel is on a hand-painted Jay Ward Studio background of the S.S. Guppy, the ship that the good Cap'n commands. His Frozen Delight product presumably never made it past the test marketing stage and no record of the bear character can be found. This artwork came from the offices of a former art director for Quaker Oats and includes an early "Dudley Do-Right Emporium" label on back of the frame. Actual production art from Jay Ward Studios is incredibly rare and a setup with the whole crew on a production background with an unknown character make this the holy grail of Ward collectibles! It is matted and framed under glass with a mat opening of 8.25" x 11.5" in a frame measuring 13.75" x 16.5". Condition is Fine. Frame is sold as-is.
