    Dig That Dog Percy P. Pettipoint Production Cel on Key Master Background (Walter Lantz, 1954). Percy P. Pettipoint puts the finishing touches on the perfect little house he's just constructed for his new Great Dane puppy, Cuddles. In this brilliant short from Walter Lantz studios, Percy teaches his new puppy Cuddles to bury a bone only to find that the full-grown Cuddles is inclined to bury everything he sees including the furniture, house, and eventually the moon. This is a remarkable hand-inked hand-painted production cel on a one-of-a-kind hand-painted Key Master background from 0:25 mark at the start of this delightful cartoon. The character measures 3.5" x 3.25 on a 12 field cel over the original background painted in gouache and marked P22 BG2 along the border. The art is in a 17" x 14" mat with and 12" x 9" opening. Condition is Very Good.
