    I Dream of Jeannie Animated Opening Production Cel Setup with Painted Background (DePatie/Freleng, 1965). From 1965 until 1970, this cute animated opening greeted viewers to one of TV's most popular sitcoms, I Dream of Jeannie. Finding original production cels from this famous intro has been the dream of many animation collectors. Well, not only do we have a great original hand-inked, hand-painted cel of Jeannie doing her little dance, but her bottle as well -- and you never see the bottle! This full-figure image of Jeannie (based on beautiful actress Barbara Eden) has a figure size of 5.75", and can be see at about :19 into the opening. The bottle is seen a bit later as it floats by; you can see the bottom base of the bottle here, and not the open top as seen when Jeannie dances by (there is a possibility this is actually a color model cel of the bottle). The cels are placed on a cool custom hand-painted background, and the setup is matted with an opening size of 11.5" x 8.5" in a Plexiglas-front frame measuring 21.75" x 19.75". The frame is sold as-is. Cel condition is Fine.

    More Information: EDT: Bottle may be a color model cel.
