    Zipping Along Wile E. Coyote Scenic Production Background (Warner Brothers, 1953). "How to induce a person to jump off a cliff." This original production background can be seen around the 3:47 minute mark, where Wile E. Coyote rests against a cactus (in the foreground) and researches yet another scheme to catch the Road Runner -- this time he'll try hypnotism! It's a remarkable two-layer hand-painted production background by Phillip DeGuard (1910-1982) from the Chuck Jones-directed short released on 9/19/53. The art is in gouache on 12 field background board. Original Warner Brothers art from this era was routinely thrown out by the studio, making this one-of-a-kind piece extremely rare. It is framed with a mat opening of 7.25" x 10", in a frame measuring approximately 15" x 18". There is some minor handling wear; otherwise, condition is Fine.
