    Peck Up Your Troubles/Ain't it Ducky Sylvester Cat and Woodpecker Production Cel Setup on a Production Background (Warner Brothers, 1945). In Sylvester the Cat's second theatrical appearance, he discovers a Woodpecker has moved in nearby and intend to make a meal of it. This Friz Freleng-directed cartoon marked the first appearance of Sylvester's long-time foe Hector the Bulldog, who would later become a recurring character in many Tweety and Sylvester cartoons. This is an original hand-inked, hand-painted 2-cel setup from the 1945 short Peck Up Your Troubles. The 5.5" tall image of Sylvester can be seen at the 0:43 minute mark and the 3" tall woodpecker appears seconds later at 0:56. Both characters are in full-figure on trimmed cels over a trimmed production background from another 1945 Friz Freleng-directed short, Ain't it Ducky? This is a wonderful setup and includes one of the earliest Sylvester the Cat production cels we have ever seen. A small piece of red paint has separated from the woodpecker's head. Overall condition is Very Good. From the Rev Chaney Archives.
