    A Connecticut Rabbit in King Arthur's Court Bugs Bunny Production Cel Setup (Warner Brothers, 1978). "Something wicked this way went," says Bugs Bunny after a close call with a fire-breathing dragon. Established in the opening credits as "A Chuck Jones Original Presentation - of a story stolen from Mark Twain," A Connecticut Rabbit in King Arthur's Court was a television special that premiered on 2/23/1978. Seen at the 2:24 of the cartoon, this fantastic hand-painted original production cel setup features Bugs narrowly missing the dragon's flame in a comedic pose. In addition, this wonderful piece comes with a matching original animation drawing rendered in graphite and blue pencil on 12 field animation paper. This is an excellent set of pieces for any celebrating Bugs Bunny's 80th year in 2020. The cels are framed under Plexiglas with a mat window of 12" x 9.25" and an overall frame size of approximately 28" x 26". The cels show little handling wear and are displayed on a printed background for presentation purposes. The drawing shows minor handling and edge wear with mild wrinkling and folding throughout. It contains the notation H-36 in the lower right corner. The condition overall is Very Good. The frame is sold as is.
