    Chilly Willy Production Cel and Master Production Background (Walter Lantz, c. 1960s-70s). Chilly Willy made his debut in 1953. Some of his first cartoons were directed by Tex Avery. He became a big fan favorite and made 50 theatrical cartoons from 1953 to 1971. This is an outstanding hand-inked, hand-painted trimmed production cel of Chilly Willy, with an unusually large image size of 4". Cel is trimmed to 9.5" x 10" and placed on a Chilly Willy hand-painted trimmed Master production background. The cel has a Walter Lantz Studio stamp on the bottom right corner. This is a great Master cel and background setup of Chilly in his home state of Alaska. Minor handling wear, cel is stapled at top to background by studio. In Very Good condition.
