    Animaniacs Yakko, Wakko and Dot Production Cel Setup with Key Master Background (Warner Brothers, c. 1993-98). Presented is a spectacular hand-painted original production cel setup from the hit classic Saturday morning cartoon Animaniacs, taped to its original Key Master background. Animaniacs set a high bar for Saturday morning cartoons with its relentless quick wit, satirical social commentary, pop culture references and innuendo aimed at adult audiences. It brought an unprecedented intelligence to the traditional slapstick humor of the classic cartoons it modeled itself after. An exceptional find, this piece features the flagship characters Yakko, Wakko and Dot Warner in full figure and centered on the 12 field cels, and the background is rendered stunningly in gouache on background board. The door behind the Warner siblings is rendered on the second cel. This amazing piece bears a Warner Brothers seal and Certificate of Authenticity, and it shows minor handling and edge wear from normal studio use. The condition of this 12 field Key Master setup is Very Good.
