    Rocket Squad Daffy Duck and Porky Pig Animation Layout Drawing and Signed Limited Edition Hand-Painted Cel #189/500 Group of 2 (Warner Brothers, 1956). "The drawings have been changed to protect the innocent." Chuck Jones (1912 - 2002) directed this short written by Tedd Pierce that was released on 3/10/56. It was a parody of the TV show Dragnet, with Daffy Duck playing Sgt. Joe Monday, and Porky Pig playing Det. Schmoe Tuesday. This wonderful original layout features the classic duo as futuristic cops protecting the Milky Way Galaxy. This is the memorable scene from the :56 mark just into the short. The layout drawing is numbered #3 in the top, and "Rocket Squad" is written below the characters. This exact scene was used for a Chuck Jones limited edition hand-painted cel released in 1994. It was an edition of only 500 pieces and sold out ASAP. The cel is hand-signed by Chuck Jones and is #189 of only 500 produced. There is a Linda Jones seal on the cel and original COA on back of frame. It is extremely rare to have a 1956 original drawing and then the limited edition cel of the same scene made 38 years later. The drawing is matted and glass front framed to 20"x 18", and the limited cel is Plexiglas front framed to 20" x 18" as well. Both are in Fine condition.
