    Trouble Indemnity Mr. Magoo Production Cels (UPA, 1951). A trio of hand-inked and hand-painted production cels of Mr. Magoo, the Fraudulent Insurance salesman, and the head of a bearskin rug upon which Mr. Magoo eventually trips and breaks his foot. They are from the opening scene where he ushers the salesman out the door... of the closet containing his Rutgers College gear! The characters measure 4" and 6". The three cels are on a hand-painted master production background measuring 18" x 10" with a torn upper left corner, missing an area about 1.25" x 2.5"; in Fair condition. The Salesman cel has a sharp bend that cuts through his hat, with some paint loss, and is in Fair condition, while the bear cel is in Good condition with slight crack in the bear's head. The Magoo cel is Fine. From the Pete Burness Archive.
