    Peanuts - Charlie Brown's All Stars! Production Cel Setup with Key Master Background (Bill Melendez, 1966). "It's hero time!" Charlie Brown finally gets a hit, stealing second and third base on his way to home plate. With two outs in the ninth and the game-tying run on third base, Charlie Brown almost becomes the hero, in what may be the single happiest moment of his life! This is a rare, hand-painted production cel setup of Charlie Brown as he is stealing third base, in this landmark second Charles Schulz Peanuts television special. This is a 2-cel setup with the dust effects from his slide. The cel is on its Key Master hand-painted background. In fact, this Dean Spille-painted background is on screen for almost 38 seconds! You can see this scene at the 19:22 mark into the special. Charlie Brown's All Stars premiered on 6/8/66 on CBS, over 52 years ago! A Key Master hand-inked setup from this early show is as rare as they get! The show was nominated for an Emmy and became a year-after-year television event. Charlie Brown is a great full-figure image measuring 4.5". The setup is matted with an opening of 12" x 9.5", and framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 20" x 17". Frame is sold as-is. Cel is in Very Good condition. A pure piece of Charlie Brown animation history!
