Ski for Two Woody Woodpecker Production Cel (Walter Lantz, 1944). A fun, hand-inked, hand-painted production cel of Woody Woodpecker wearing a Santa hat, on skis. This is from the Shamus Culhane-directed short that was written by Ben Hardaway, and has animation done by Grim Natwick. This was a virtual "who's who" of animation! Ski for Two was the 12th Woody Woodpecker short, and was released on 11/13/44. This green-eyed Woody is in a nice 3" pose, with the ski's being approximately 8" long. The short takes place at the fully-booked Swiss Chord Lodge, in Idaho, which is run by Lodge keeper Wally Walrus. To get a room, Woody disguises himself as Santa Claus... in October! There is a slight speck of paint loss in Woody's forehead, otherwise, for this vintage, the cel is in Fine condition.
