    Description

    When Magoo Flew Production Cel and Background (UPA, 1954). This short was the first made by UPA for the Cinemascope wide-screen format. Directed by Pete Burness, this film won the Academy Award for Best Animated Short, in 1954. Magoo mistakes an airport for a movie theater, boards a plane, and thinks he's seeing a 3-D movie! This is an original, trimmed, hand-painted production background of the inside of the airport. On top of the background is a trimmed pan cel of the bass player from the Spook Jones and Gone Ghouls band, and other passengers, getting ready to enter the plane. There is major paint loss on the cel. The background has handling wear and staple marks on the top edge. In Fair condition.
