    Slap Hoppy Mouse Sylvester J. Pussycat Production Cel Setup (Warner Brothers, 1956). "Hey... you're not broken down... you're a real cool cat!" Says Junior to his father, Sylvester as they search for mice. This is an outstanding hand-inked and hand-painted production cel of Sylvester in his mouse-hunting hat. Little does he know that a giant mouse (actually an escaped kangaroo named Hippity Hopper) will soon arrive! This short was directed by Robert McKimson and was released on 9/1/56. The cel can be seen at about the 3:03 mark into the short. A wonderful full-figure image of a 5" Sylvester. The cel is on a beautiful hand-painted, custom background used for presentation purposes. Warner Brothers cartoon cels from this era are rare. This one is framed to an overall size of 19.5" x 17.5" and is in Fine condition.
