    Description

    Tweety's Circus Tweety Bird Production Cel Setup on Master Production Background (Warner Brothers, 1955). Tweety stars as one of the circus animals on display in this short directed by the great Friz Freleng. This particular Merry Melody is notable as the last to use the tune "Merrily We Roll Along" in the titles. Presented is a hand-inked, hand-painted production cel of Tweety who measures 1" x 1.5" and can be seen in this hilarious short around the 2:28 mark. The 12 field cel is over an original hand-painted production background of Tweety's cage which first appears at the 1:47 mark. The gouache on board painting is by noted Freleng Unit background artist Irv Wyner (1904 -2002) and is signed by the artist in the lower right corner. Included over the background is a hand-inked overlay cel of the bars on the cage. This is a rare Master production setup from a vintage Warner Brothers cartoon featuring the titular star. The art is framed under Plexiglas with a mat opening of 12" x 9" in a 19" x 16" frame. Condition is Very Good and frame is sold as-is.
