    Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote Production Cel Setup (Warner Brothers, 1971). "Test Drive the New Road Runner... Hurry!" Wile E. Coyote tries to trick the Road Runner into thinking a wooden fake Dodge Road Runner is a real car, in this well-made television commercial. Legendary Warner Brothers animation director Robert McKimson (1910 - 1977) worked on this and other commercials for the Dodge Road Runner. This is a setup of two 12 field hand-painted production cels of Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote from a 1971 Road Runner car commercial that can be seen around the 0:16 mark. This great spot is currently shown on YouTube. Both of these full-figure images stand 4" and are over a print background for presentation purposes. The setup is matted with an opening of 12" x 8.75", and framed with glass for an overall size of 19.5" x 16.25" x 1". Frame is sold as-is. The piece shows minor handling wear. Condition is Very Good.
