    Cool World Detective Nails Production Cel Sequence of 3 (Ralph Bakshi, 1992). Sequence of three original hand-painted production cels from Ralph Bakshi's neo-noir, Cool World. This film was Bakshi's first feature in nine years. The sidekick character of Detective Nails, a cartoon "doodle," is featured here, in a jubilant progression of poses, in which he literally jumps for joy. Nails was the partner of live-action cop Brad Pitt in this fondly-remembered oddball film. This character really has that early 1970s "Bakshi feel" to his design. Cels in sequence are 12 field, 3-peghole, and are all in Fine condition.
