    Description

    What's Opera, Doc? Elmer Fudd Production Cel (Warner Brothers, 1957). "With my spear and magic HELmet!" If just seeing this cel doesn't get that cartoon stuck in your head, then we just didn't have the same kind of childhood! What's Opera, Doc? is arguably Bugs Bunny's most memorable cartoon. It was rated as the greatest cartoon of all time in Jerry Beck's 1994 book The 50 Greatest Cartoons. Directed by Chuck Jones, written by Mike Maltese, with layouts by Maurice Noble. Chuck Jones said "For sheer production quality, magnificent music, and wonderful animation, this is our most elaborate and satisfying production." Cels from this cartoon are incredibly rare and highly sought after... and this one is an extremely desirable one with his spear and helmet. Elmer stands 6.5" x 6.5". It is numbered "110" on this 12 field, 3-peghole cel. There is slight paint separation in horns and spear, but no paint loss. A beloved classic in Very Good condition.
