    Description

    Starkist "Charlie the Tuna" Commercial Production Cel (Starkist, 1970s). A rare, original 12-field hand-inked, hand-painted production cel of Charlie the Tuna, from a Starkist Tuna TV Commercial. The "Charlie" commercials were wildly popular and gave us the classic phrases "Tell' em Charlie Sent Ya!" and "Sorry Charlie, only the best tuna get to be Starkist Tuna!" This is the single largest image of Charlie, on a cel, that we have ever seen! He stands a full 9" tall and 5" wide. In Fine condition.
