    The Bugs Bunny Show Bugs Bunny Production Cel on Key Master Production Background and Master Production Background (Warner Brothers, 1960). In many of the early Bugs Bunny Shows the opening sequence featured Bugs or one of his fellow Warner Brothers characters giving a demonstration of the animation process as they introduced the first cartoon. This is a pair of very rare original production pieces from one of those early sequences. The first is an original hand-inked hand-painted production cel of Bugs who stands 8" tall. The cel is over the Key Master background from the scene where bugs approaches a drawing table. The second is a hand-painted production background/held image of paints on a shelf above the drawing table. It is interesting to note that these early episodes were broadcast in black and white, necessitating the labeling of the paint colors. This is an absolutely incredible pair of one-of-a-kind vintage artwork from Bugs Bunny's first television series. All the great Warner Brothers directors were still working at the studio at this time and contributed to these opening scenes. The pieces share a common frame under Plexiglas with dual mat openings of 12" x 9" in a 33" 15.5" frame. Condition is Very Good. Frame is sold as-is.
