    Peanuts It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown/Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown Charlie Brown and Friends Production Cel Setup and Production Background (Bill Melendez, 1974/75). Despite the disappointing no-show of The Great Pumpkin, Linus enthusiastically touts the imminent arrival of the "Easter Beagle" in this the 12th Peanuts TV special. This is an original hand-painted production cel setup of Charlie Brown, Linus, Peppermint Patty, and Marci. The characters measure in a range of 3" to 3.5" tall on a 12 field multi-cel setup. The setup is on a Dean Spille hand-painted production background from 13th special, Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown. Peanuts production cels and production backgrounds from the early to mid 1970s are considered very rare. The piece shows minor handling wear; otherwise condition is Very Good.
