    Deputy Droopy Shorty and the Sheriff Production Cels Group of 2 and Pan Painted Background (MGM/DePatie-Freleng, 1955/c. 1970s). Pair of hand-inked, hand-painted production cels of Bank Robber Shorty and the Sheriff. These rare cels are from the Tex Avery-directed short that was released on 10/28/55. Animation was done by Irv Spence, Kenny Muse, Ray Patterson, Ed Barge, and Walter Clinton. Great large images measuring 5" and 6". The Sheriff has some paint cracking and may require minor restoration; Shorty is fine. The two 12 field cels are on a hand-painted DePatie-Freleng Western pan background from the 1970s. The cels work well with this production background, which measures 24.5" x 10.5". Minor tape and staples on top border, nowhere near any artwork. Overall Very Good condition.
