    Description

    The Three Bears Production Cel with Key Master Background (Terrytoons, 1939). "Somebody toucha my spaghetti!" says Papa Bear in this animated Three Bears story that had the bears as Italians. Also in this short, Goldilocks was a jitterbug singer. The Papa Bear's spaghetti expression from this cartoon actually went viral in a YouTube clip in 2018. This short was directed by Mannie Davis. This is a very rare hand-inked, hand-painted production cel of the three bears finding Goldilocks sleeping in baby's bed. The cel is on its 12 field Key Master hand-painted production background. Terrytoons Key Master setups for this era are as rare as they come. This Key setup can be seen around the 2:19 mark into the cartoon. The original mat is in a new frame setup. The original mat is hand-signed by Paul Terry (1887 - 1971). His signature is also considered very rare, especially on a studio 1939 Key Master setup! The setup is in a frame of 19" x 16.5" with a mat opening of 11" x 8". Frame is sold as-is. Artwork is in Very Good condition.
