    The Tracey Ullman Show - The Simpsons Bart, Lisa, and Maggie Production Cel Setup with Key Master Background (Fox, 1988). "Whatcha doing?" asks Lisa to Bart. He replies "Skateboarding" "Can we come?" she asks. "Skateboarding's men's work... Cowabunga!" This was only the 24th produced segment of The Simpsons. It was shown on 2/7/88 on The Tracey Ullman Show, over a year before Springfield's favorite family received their own series. This is an exceptional original hand-painted production cel of Bart, who is surprised to find Lisa and Maggie on his skateboard after telling them they could not participate. It is seen at the :24 second mark in to the cartoon. The cel is on its Key Master hand-painted background, which is also painted on cel. Considering the importance of skateboarding to Bart, this is an extremely important piece of Simpsons history. The rare Key Master setup is matted with an opening of 9" x 6.5", and framed using glass for an overall size of 15.5" x 13". Frame is sold as-is; setup is in Very Good condition.
