    Trap Happy Porky Production cel (Warner Brothers, 1945). Porky works his way up the food chain, sending cats after mice and dogs after cats in an attempt to get a little shut-eye in this Chuck Jones-directed short. It starred Hubie and Bertie and early versions of both Claude cat and Hector the Bulldog. This is an original hand-inked, hand-painted 12 field production cel of Porky who measures 2.5" x 4.5". It can be seen around the 4:27 mark as the drunken cats gather around him. Warner Brothers studio routinely destroyed their animation cels and a full-figure image of Porky in a fantastic pose like this is a rare find. There is minor paint loss at the bottom of his nightshirt. Condition is Very Good. From the Rev Chaney Archives.
