DescriptionSurf-Bored Cat Tom Cat and Starfish Production Cel Setup (MGM, 1967). Tom decides he wants to be a surfer in the worst way, and that's how he winds up, in this original hand-painted 12 field 2-cel setup. The short was produced by Chuck Jones and directed by Abe Levitow; it was released on 5/5/67. Tom finds himself stuck with a red starfish on his head in several scenes; this one can be found at the 4:40 mark within the short. The effects cel of a swirl around Tom's head has been added. Tom's figure size is 7.5" wide. Top cel includes a Linda Jones seal. Background is a print, added fro presentation purposes. A Chuck Jones Gallery Letter of Authenticity is included. Good condition, with cel curling and minor handling.
