    The Year of the Mouse Tom Cat Production Cel (MGM, 1965). Jerry and his pal Dupli Mouse keep pulling practical jokes on a sleeping Tom, in this short, directed by animation legends Chuck Jones and Maurice Noble. Here's Tom about to settle down in his cat bed, in an original hand-painted 12 field production cel. You can find the scene in online viewings at about the 1:43 mark as Tom tries to settle back down after the first attack. Tom and his pillow bed have an overall image size of 6" x 5.25". The background is a print from later in the short, added for presentation purposes. A screen grab print of Tom in the actual scene is included. Cel has a Linda Jones seal in the lower right, over the sequence notation 48. A Chuck Jones Gallery Letter of Authenticity is included; although the image on the LOA matches the cel, the film's title is incorrectly listed. Cel is in Fine condition.
