    Description

    The Bugs Bunny Show/Bunny and Claude Speedy Gonzales Production Cel on Production Background (Warner Brothers, 1960's/68). Here is a magnificent hand-inked hand-painted production cel of Speedy Gonzales from an appearance on the Bugs Bunny Show. He is in full-figure measuring 4.5" x 4.25" on a 12 field cel over a hand-painted production background. The background is from one of only two Bunny and Claude shorts, Bunny and Claude (We Rob Carrot Patches). It can be seen around the 4:13 mark in this very rare short directed by Robert McKimson in the final days of Warner Brothers' Animation department. The cel and background work flawlessly together. The background is painted in gouache with ink and colored pencil detailing on watercolor paper and is marked 21778 BG 50 along the border. Vintage Warner Brothers' production art is incredibly rare and the large image of this usually diminutive character is especially hard to come by. Combined with a background from a show that only lasted two episodes makes this a truly unique piece of Warner animation history. The setup is in a mat that measures 20" x 16" with a 12" x 10" opening. Condition is Very Good.
