DescriptionChilly Willy Production Cel on Production Background with Animation Drawing (Walter Lantz, c. 1960s). The adorable Chilly Willie sits atop a snow drift in this production set-up which features an original hand-inked hand painted Willy in full figure measuring 3" tall on a 12-field production cel with the number 2 handwritten in the bottom right corner a Water Lantz Productions copyright in the bottom left. The cel is over an original hand-painted production background marked BG-18 in the upper right border. It is painted in gouache on 3-peghole background board. Along with the cel and background setup is the original animation drawing rendered in graphite and blue pencil on 3-peghole animation paper and 2 in the lower right corner. The two pieces share a common mat with dual openings of 9" x 12" with an overall measurement of 32" x 14". The art shows light handling and the drawing has a fold crease in the lower right corner; otherwise condition for the lot is Very Good.
