    Peanuts Life is a Circus, Charlie Brown Snoopy and Polly Production Cel on Master Production Background (Bill Melendez, 1982). "Alright everybody rehearsal time. We're gonna sharpen up our act and infuse Hugo!" says circus poodle trainer Polly. In this, the 20th Charlie Brown television special, Snoopy joins Polly's Poodle act and becomes Hugo the Great. The special went on to win an Emmy. This is an original hand-painted color model cel of Snoopy with Polly and one of her poodles on the high-wire. The characters measure in a range of 3" to 3.5" tall on a 12 field cel over a magnificent Master hand-painted production background. The background measures 13.5" x 16" and the bottom border is marked "circus" BG 93. This is one of the only cel and Master background setups from this special we have seen. It's also a fantastic image of Snoopy as Hugo the Great! Very Good condition.
