    Madeline Production Cels Group of 6 (UPA, 1952). "In an old house in Paris, that was covered in vine, lived twelve little girls, in two straight lines." This is how the Robert Cannon-directed Jolly Frolics cartoon Madeline opens. A young Bill Melendez did a great deal of animation on this story that was co-written by Bullwinkle's Bill Scott. This is a rare collection of hand-inked, hand-painted production cels featuring Miss Clavel, her pupils and a Gendarme. This short was nominated for an Academy Award and cels from it are a Madeline collector's dream. Some of the characters exhibit some paint loss, particularly the Gendarme. Condition is Very Good. From the Rev Chaney Archives.
