    Description

    Chevron "Dinosaur" TV Commercial Production Cel (Chevron/Kurtz and Friends, 1975). Kurtz and Friends Animation created a classic ad spot with this 1975 commercial, which went on to win the IBA Award, Clio Award, and Belding Award; it's been called "the best oil company campaign in 20 years" by esteemed trade publication Advertising Age. This is an hand-inked, hand-painted 12 field production cel, featuring a wildly extended car zooming down the road, with a "dinosaur" poking his head out through the gas tank. The commercial can be seen online; this image occurs near the end of the one-minute spot, at the :51 mark. This is a wonderfully colorful single cel image, designed by Robert Peluce. The blue sky background is a print that matches the hue of the actual commercial. The cel has been hand-signed by animator/director Bob Kurtz. Fine condition with very minor handling.
