    Description

    Robot Rabbit Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd Production Cels Group of 2 (Warner Brothers, 1953). "Oh, carrots are divine, you get a dozen for a dime. It's Maaagic!" sings Bugs Bunny in this classic Warner short that pits carrot farmer Elmer against his crop-chomping nemesis. This Friz Freleng-directed cartoon is a quintessential early '50s Bugs and Elmer match-up. Upon discovering a "wabbit" has invaded his "cawwot patch", Elmer contacts the Acme Pest Control Company who sends over a robotic exterminator and the hilarity quickly ensues. This is a pair of hand-inked hand-painted 12 field production cels featuring the stars of this vintage short. Both are in full-figure measuring approximately 6" tall. The images appear mere minutes apart in the beginning of the show with a startled Elmer having discovered Bugs' rabbit hole at the 1:01 mark and a gracious Bugs at 1:58 having just complimented Elmer that he"danced divinely." Warner Brothers Studios destroyed virtually all of its animation art, making survivors like these incredibly desirable to collectors. Finding two production cels of this quality and condition from the same cartoon is practically unheard of. Each is framed similarly in separate frames under Plexiglas with mat openings of 15" x 14" in 25" x 24" frames. They exhibit minor handling and condition is Very Good. Frames are sold as-is.
