    The Jungle Book King Louie Production Cel and Key Master Background (Walt Disney, 1967). "Mowgli, don't you realize you're a human?" asks Baloo. This is an original hand-painted production cel of Mowgli and Baloo from the scene where Baloo tries to get Mowgli to accept that he should return to the Man-Village. The two character images measure 4" and 6" on a production cel over a Key Master pan production background. Backgrounds in this film were painted by Bill Layne, Art Riley, Ralph Hulett, Thelma Witmer, Frank Armitrage, and Al Dempster. The sheer beauty of this hand-painted background makes it a masterpiece all by itself. The one-of-a-kind setup is in a 28" x 17" frame with a mat opening of 20" x 10". This is easily one of the most elaborate Key Master setups from The Jungle Book that we have ever come across. Condition is Very Good and the frame is sold as-is.
