    The Magilla Gorilla Show Production Cel and Painted Background (Hanna-Barbera, 1964). "We got a gorilla for sale, Magilla Gorilla for sale... won't you buy him, take him home and try him... gorilla for sale!" Magilla Gorilla premiered on 1/14/64. It was sponsored in full by the Ideal Toy Company. The show starred lovable Magilla Gorilla along with pet shop owner Mr. Peebles and the little girl who loves him, Ogee. This is a great hand-inked, hand-painted production cel of Magilla Gorilla, with a nice large image size of 6". The cel is on a hand-painted 12 field production background from an unknown cartoon. The cel and background work very well together. In a mat measuring 20" x 16". Condition is Very Good.
