    Description

    The Isle of Pingo Pongo Jungle Natives Production Cel and Painted Background (Warner Brothers, 1938). Three angry-looking natives do a song and dance, in this original hand-inked, hand-painted 12 field production cel. A vintage note on the backside of the art, with a Leon Schlesinger signature, mentions this as from the Merrie Melodies short, The Major Lied 'Til Dawn, this is actually from the banned Tex Avery cartoon The Isle of Pingo Pongo; the natives are singing "She'll Be Comin' 'Round the Mountain" here. The three figures measure about 6" each. The hand-painted background is not from this scene, but does appear to be from a 1930s Warners short, and works well with the cel. The cel is in an old mat measuring 19" x 17", and is in Fine condition.
