    Description

    It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown Book Illustration Cel and Background (Bill Melendez, 1978). "Tricks or treats, money or eats! I got a chocolate bar! I got a quarter! I got five pieces of candy... what did you get Charlie Brown? I GOT A ROCK!!!" Charles Schulz said of this iconic line, "Bags and bags of candy came in from all over the world, just for Charlie Brown!" This is an original printed line art cel and hand-painted Key Master background setup of this scene. This was used in the Read Along Book and Record from 1978. This famous image can be seen on page 11. The background is painted in gouache on illustration board measuring 10" x 9", with an approximate image area of 7" x 6.5". Great six-character scene! Characters are 2" each. Fine condition.
