DescriptionThe Woody Woodpecker Show Rice Krispies Commercial Production Cel Setup with Key Master Pan Background and Animation Drawings (Walter Lantz, c. 1960s). Buzz Buzzard flies away with a purloined box of tasty Rice Krispies, but wait – here comes Woody Woodpecker, with Snap, Crackle, and Pop riding on his back, in fast pursuit! Woody and company were featured in quite a few humorous cartoon commercials back in the days of the fondly-remembered Woody Woodpecker Show. This amazing display features Woody and the Krispies crew as a 2-cel setup, while Buzz in his airplane and box of cereal make up a 5-cel setup. These are hand-inked, hand-painted 12 field cels, placed on their Key Master pan background that is 31.75" wide. The setup is on a corrugated backing board, and on back of that are two of the original animation drawings, including Snap, Crackle, and Pop with Woody's torso, arms, and legs on one; and Buzz's plane on the other. Art is in graphite with faint red and blue highlights on the first, and a red pencil underdrawing on the other. This setup had at one time been on display in Walter Lantz's Universal Studios office. Drawings are in Good condition with handling wear and paper toning, while the cels and background is Very Good condition, with a few small paint cracks and a small area of missing paint in the tail of Buzz's plane.
