    Description

    It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown Book Illustration Cel and Background (Bill Melendez, 1978). "There you are. Sleeping in the pumpkin patch in the freezing cold. Come on, Linus. Let's go home." Outstanding cel and hand-painted Key Master background done for the Read Along Book and Record book from 1978. This iconic image can be seen on page 21. The printed line cel is placed on a Key Master hand-painted background. Gouache on 12" x 9" illustration board with an approximate image area of 9.25" x 7.5". While many cels are used in an animated project, in book illustration art there is just one. One of the most iconic images from this historic TV Special. Fine condition.
