    Description

    Slap-Hoppy Mouse Sylvester, Sylvester Jr. and Hippety Hopper Production Cels and Painted Backgrounds Group of 2 (Warner Brothers, 1956). "Oh, father!" Sylvester Jr. impresses upon his lazy Dad his desire to learn how to catch a mouse in this hilarious Robert McKimson-directed Looney Tunes short. Presented is a pair of original hand-inked, hand-painted 12 field production cels from this vintage Warner Brothers cartoon. The first in the set is Sylvester and Junior together on a single cel. Sporting their hunting hats, they are both full-figure measuring 5" and 2" tall respectively and can be seen at the 3:21 mark. The cel is over a custom hand-painted background. The second production cel is of Hippety Hopper in full-figure who measures 4.75" tall and can be seen at the 6:14 mark. It too is presented over a custom hand-painted background. Quality vintage Warner Brothers cels are about as rare as they come and Sylvester Jr. and Hippety appeared in very few cartoons, making this matching set extraordinarily rare. Both cels are framed similarly under Plexiglas with mat openings approximately 11" x 9" in 20" x 17" frames. Both pieces are in Very Good condition and the frames are sold as-is.
