    The Magilla Gorilla Show Production Bumper Cel and Painted Background (Hanna-Barbera, 1964). "How much is that Gorilla in the window?" This series was sponsored by the Ideal Toy Company and premiered on 1/14/64. In addition to Magilla Gorilla, there were cartoon segments featuring Ricochet Rabbit, Punkin' Puss and Mushmouse, and Breezily Bruin. This is an outstanding hand-inked, hand-painted production cel of Magilla Gorilla from a sponsor/bumper spot within the show. The great image of Magilla watching himself on a '60s television set is placed on a hand-painted Hanna-Barbera production background from an unknown cartoon. Magilla is 6" next to his TV. Brilliant color on one of the best pure Magilla Gorilla cels we have seen! Matted with an opening of 12" x 8", and framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 18" x 14". Frame is sold as-is; cel condition is Very Good.
