    The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show Snoopy and Woodstock Progression Production Cels on Pan Master Background plus Animation Drawings Group of 30 (Bill Melendez Studios, c. 1983). This is a fantastic one-of-a-kind Snoopy progression cel setup on a Master pan background. For starters, this is a very long hand-painted Master background measuring a whopping 39.5" x 10.5". This is one of the longest Snoopy backgrounds that we have seen. The background painting is attributed to the hand of Dean Spille. Mr. Spille was a long-time background painter and concept artist for Bill Melendez Productions. The background has 15 production cels featuring Snoopy and Woodstock positioned in sequence on the background in a way that shows the characters action. The cels were hand-painted on 12 field acetate. Progression pieces are very special because of the scarcity of good backgrounds that have a fun sequence of action cels like this one. In this piece, Snoopy is removing (with attitude) his organ-grinder costume. Included in this lot are the 15 matching animation drawing for Snoopy and Woodstock. A rare acquisition opportunity not to be missed by fans of Joe Cool. Minor production handling and edge wear. Condition is Very Good.

    More Information: EDIT: Changed short description header and total number from 15 to 30 to include animation drawings with the cels.
