    Super Chicken Publicity Cel and Background (Jay Ward, 1973). An original hand-painted Jay Ward Publicity cel of the wildest superhero ever, Super Chicken, housed in a Jay Ward Studios mat signed by Studio main man Bill Scott. Bill wrote on the cel, "You knew the job was dangerous when you took it, Not! Super Chicken Bill Scott." On the reverse is a letter on Jay Ward stationery, signed by Jay himself, giving permission to hang this piece in a movie project. The image area measures 9" x 7", and the original Jay Ward mat is 13" x 10"; an additional mat brings the overall size to 20" x 16". Both mats display some aging, but the cel and background remain in Excellent condition. Quick Fred, the Super Sauce! Cluck AWK!!
