DescriptionTom and Jerry Tom Production Cel (MGM, c. 1960s).
Legendary Warner Brothers director Chuck Jones began MGM Animation/Visual Arts in 1963 and took over the Tom and Jerry franchise until 1967. He produced 34 Tom and Jerry shorts in that time. Here is an original production cel of Tom from a short directed by Mr. Jones. It is a hand-inked and hand-printed full-figure image of Tom with a hammer; his extra thick black eyebrows tell you that he is from the Chuck Jones era. The image measures 5" x 8" on a 12 field 3-peghole cel that bears an early Linda Jones seal. The number 46C is handwritten in the lower right corner. Condition is Fine.
