    George of the Jungle George and Tookie-Tookie Bird Production Cel and Matching Animation Drawing (Jay Ward, 1967). This is an extremely rare hand-inked and hand-painted 12 field production cel of George and his Tookie-Tookie Bird from the last animated TV series Jay Ward Studios would ever produce. The animation for the studio was done in Mexico and the art was routinely discarded after being used, so very little original art survived. While George of the Jungle was Jay Ward's (1920 - 1989) last cartoon series, the franchise later became a live action feature film for Walt Disney Studios starring Brendan Fraser and a revamped animated series on the Cartoon Network. The 5" x 5" image of the two characters is presented over a print of a jungle background from the show. The original matching animation drawing is framed with the cel making this a doubly rare piece. Both matted and framed under glass with dual mat openings of 8.5" x 11" and 10" x 12" in a 26" x 18" frame. Condition is Fine. Frame is sold as-is.
