    Rocky and Bullwinkle Rocket J. Squirrel Signed Pan Production Cel with Signed Check (Jay Ward, 1959). "Never fear, JETS are here... the cereal that gives you Jet energy! Helps you win!" says Rocky to boxer Bullwinkle, sitting in his corner slumped over and in need of a pick-me-up, in a classic TV commercial. Virtually no production cels exist for the Rocky and Bullwinkle original cartoon shows as the cels were done in Mexico. The animated sponsor segments shown within each show were, however, done in the US. This is a RARE hand-inked, hand-painted pan production cel of Rocket J. Squirrel in mid-flight, in a huge image measuring 10". The cel is hand-signed by Bullwinkle Show director Bill Hurtz (1919 - 2000), show writer Chris Jenkyns (1924 - 2011) and the first Lady of Animation, Ms. June Foray -- the voice of Rocky (1917 - 2017). As a bonus, instead of holding a box of Jets cereal, Rocky is holding an actual Jay Ward (1920 - 1989) signed check. Hurtz and Jenkyns have also dedicated the back of the frame. The signatures were all obtained at the Midwest Animation Lecture Series in Chicago in the 1990s. Framed with glass; matted with an opening of size 17" x 10", with an overall frame size of 24" x 16". This actual spot is available for viewing on YouTube! This is a pure piece of Jay Ward Studio history. Small crease by tail. Very Good condition.
