    Description

    Wideo Wabbit Elmer Fudd Production Cel (Warner Brothers, 1956). "Oh George, take this candelabra over to mother" says "Liverace" (Bugs Bunny) to a confused Elmer Fudd, in this hilarious send-up of 1950s television. At the time, pianist Liberace hosted a very popular (with housewives) daily show where he was forever mentioning his brother "George." In this rare original hand-inked, hand-painted production cel, Elmer is called by that name as he enters the TV studio while hunting Bugs (who has escaped from Elmer's own show, "The Sportsman's Hour"); find it in online viewings at the 4:51 mark. Nice full-figure image of Elmer in his hunting outfit from this Robert McKimson-directed short, with a figure size of 5.5". The cel is noted as B22 in the lower right corner. Only a handful of production cels from the Golden Age of Looney Tunes exists today! Very Good condition with minor handling wear.
