    Road Runner Production Cel and Custom Background (Warner Brothers, 1964). After Chuck Jones left Warner Brothers to work at MGM in circa 1964, Robert McKimson, Friz Freleng, and Rudy Larriva went on to make fourteen Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner shorts in 1965-66. They also did new animation for a series of Dodge Road Runner commercials in the 1960s as well. This is a rare mid '60s 12 field hand-painted production cel of the Road Runner from this Robert McKimson-directed short. Road Runner production cels are hard to find from this era. Great full-figure image, with a size of 4". The cel is from about the 3:14 mark, where he is on a railroad hand car, opposite Wile E. Coyote. The cel is on a hand-painted custom background, added for presentation purposes. Matted with an opening of 12" x 9"; framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 21" x 18". Frame is sold as-is, artwork condition is Very Good.
