    Description

    The Dudley Do-Right Show Snidely Whiplash and Nell Scene Cel with Production Background (Jay Ward, 1970's). Dudley Do-Right made his debut on The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show and in 1969, Dudley Do-Right episodes were compiled to create his own show. Since all of the Jay Ward shows were painted in Mexico and the cels were washed and reused, few production cels from any of these shows exist. In 1971, the Dudley Do-Right Emporium opened on Sunset Blvd. in West Hollywood, and began offering hand-inked scene cels of the Jay Ward characters for sale. In the early days, they would cut up old backgrounds from various Jay Ward productions and put them behind the cels. This is a rare hand-inked, hand-painted scene cel of Snidely and Nell who together measure approximately 8.5" x 6.5". A truly unique aspect of this cel is that it is over a Key Master studio setup of Paul Bunyan who is hand-painted on a cel and is paired with a background that includes a poster mounted to a tree that both encapsulates the image of Paul and bears his name. This is a fascinating combination of an early scene cel and a Key Master studio production setup in one. The art is in a 16.5" x 14.5" Mat with an opening of 9" x 7". Condition is Very Good.
