    Bell Hoppy Sylvester Production Cel (Warner Brothers, 1954). Sylvester has to put the bell on Hoppity (the "Monster Mouse") in order to gain membership to the "Loyal Order of the Alley Cats Mouse Chowder Club." This is very cool hand-inked, hand-painted production cel of Sylvester the Cat wearing the bell around his neck. It can be seen at around the 4:12 mark in to the short. This cartoon was directed by Robert McKimson and was released on 4/17/54. Great full-figure image of Sylvester measuring 3.5". The cel is on a custom hand-painted background done for presentation purposes. Matted with an opening size of 11" x 9", and framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 21.5" x 19". All 1950s Warner Brothers Studio cartoon cels are considered rare since the inventory was thrown away in the early 1960s. Fine condition.
