DescriptionJolly Green Giant/ Eckrich Bologna Commercial Production Cels and Key Master Background Group of 2 (c.1980s)
These are original production cels with Key Master backgrounds from two different commercials. One featuring the Jolly Green Giant (or just his jolly green feet) and the other from an Eckrich Bologna commercial from the 1980s. Both commercials are available on YouTube. Animated commercials are excellent at spreading recognition for products. People are naturally drawn to bright colors and moving objects - and at their most basic level, animations are simply eye-catching. One study by the National Institutes of Health found that people remembered animations 21 days longer than static images and text. A related study found that people could retain very complex ideas much longer after learning them through animations. These animation cels are colorfully hand-painted and paired with the hand-painted Key Master backgrounds. The Eckrich piece measures 10" x 6" and is in a mat measuring 14.75" x 10.75". The Jolly Green Giant piece measures 11.5" x 9" and is in a mat of 16.5" x 14". Mats are sold as-is. Artwork is in Very Good condition.
