    "Bear For Punishment" The Three Bears Limited Edition Cel #260/500 (Chuck Jones, 1998). Legend has it that Stan Freberg took a bus to Hollywood, walked into a casting office, and got a cartoon speaking role for the 1944 Porky Pig short Swooner Crooner. Shortly after that, he started to receive regular cartoon voice work from Warner Brothers. He was "Junyer Bear" in the Three Bears parody The Bee-Deviled Bruin. He went onto to voice Junyer in other Three Bear shorts that were directed by Chuck Jones. This is a great Chuck Jones hand-painted limited edition cel of the Three Bears entitled "Bear for Punishment." This is Stan Freberg's personal cel that was gifted to him, #260 of only 500 made. The cel is hand-signed by Chuck Jones (1912-2002) and has a Linda Jones seal and COA on the back of the frame. This is a long-sold-out edition! Framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 19.5" x 17". Fine condition.
