DescriptionThe Phantom Tollbooth Officer Short Shrift Signed Production Cel (Chuck Jones Enterprises/MGM, 1970). The phrase "short shrift" refers to careless treatment with little consideration, and this odd little cop, "scarcely two feet tall and twice as wide," is ready to find everyone guilty of anything; he tries to arrest main character Milo in this combination live-action/animated feature film. This is an original hand-painted production cel of Officer Short Shrift with his ticket book in hand. Figure size is 7.25". The cel is noted as 17 in the lower right corner, and has been hand-signed by the director, animation legend Chuck Jones (1912 - 2002). A Linda Jones seal is on the cel; the print background has been added for presentation purposes. A Linda Jones COA is included. Very Good condition with minor handling wear.
