    The Incredible Mr. Limpet Production Cel and Master Background Setup (Warner Brothers, 1964). Outstanding hand-painted production cel of Crusty the Crab on a master hand-painted production background (possibly a pre-production background). Background is labeled "F" in top left corner. The animation in this Don Knotts live-action/ animated film was produced under such heavyweights as Robert McKimson, Bill Tytla, Art Babbitt, Phil Roman, Hawley Pratt, and Maurice Noble. This film premiered on 1/20/64 in Spring Hill, Florida at the Weekli Watchee Underwater Theater, making it the first-ever underwater premiere! The famous Paul Frees lent his voice to Crusty. Great large character image measures 4". One of the most impressive setups we have seen from this film! In Very Good condition.
