    Peanuts - Ford Falcon Snoopy Production Cel and Linus Color Model Cel Group (Playhouse Pictures, 1959/61). Bill Melendez was the main man behind virtually every single Charlie Brown TV special, TV series, and feature film. He began his association with Peanuts creator Charles Schulz at Playhouse Pictures, working on Charlie Brown's first animated appearance for Ford Falcon television commercials, as well as Ford promo/sponsorship spots for The Ford Show Starring Tennessee Ernie Ford. This is a rare, hand-inked, hand-painted production cel of Snoopy relaxing with his dog bowl, with a Ford Grille logo photo on the cel. Also included is a Color Model cel of Linus, used in the Ford Falcon commercials. Nice image sizes of 3". Detailed ink and paint note on paper behind the Linus cel. Cels from these spots are considered holy grails of collecting Peanuts Animation art. Minor handling wear. Very Good condition.
