    The Incredible Mr. Limpet Harry the Fish and Crusty the Crab Production Cel and Master Background Setup (Warner Brothers, 1964). Robert McKimson, Hawley Pratt, Bill Tytla, and Gerry Chiniquy all worked on the animation sequences in this Don Knotts-starring feature film that mixed live action and animation. Maurice Noble did a great deal of uncredited design work as well. This is a rare hand-inked, hand-painted 12 field production cel of Don Knotts as a fish with Crusty the Crab. Crusty was voiced by Paul Frees. This great production cel is on a Master hand-painted production background from the same film. This is one of the few Master setups we have ever seen from this film. Nice images of 6.5". Pinholes in corners of background. Tiny missing cel edge in bottom right; with #25 written on the bottom of the cel. Fine condition.
