    Description

    Private Snafu Production Cel Set-Up and Key Master Background (Warner Brothers, c. 1943-45). Private Snafu was a World War II character animated by the great Looney Tunes Directors -- Jones, Freleng, Clampett, and Tashlin for World War II G.I. Propaganda films. Written by -- believe it or not -- Doctor Seuss, Phillip Eastman, and Munro Leaf, the character was originally developed by Director Frank Capra. These instructional animated films warned G.I.'s of everything from poison gas, and malaria, to leaking information to Axis spies! Mel Blanc provided the voice of Private Snafu. These cartoons were all black and white. This is a very rare hand-inked, hand-painted production cel of Private Snafu in his crashed transport truck. The truck is painted on the Key Master Background. "Snafu #422 SC 36" and "Overlay" are written on the top of the two cel set-up. In Fine Condition.
