Houndini's Hat Trick

Item #houndini

Product Description

This is a hand-inked and hand painted limited edition animation cel, accompanied by a signed giclee. This Key Pose Model Sheet designed and completed under the direction of Larry Leichliter. What better way to celebrate 40 years of Houndini’s debut on television than with his famous bunny-out-of-the-hat trick! Heckled by the boy in the front row when Woodstock is pulled out by his bunny ears, Houndini brushed him off with a pop on the head with his top hat...Houndini continues to amaze the audience. Charles Schulz was fascinated by the sleight of hand/magic. In 2019, his museum dedicated an exhibit to the comic strips featuring Snoopy as Houndini. Featured here is Snoopy and Woodstock. This cel comes with the signed giclee of the key pose model sheet.

Hand Painted Limited Edition Cels

Hand-painted limited editions recreate classic moments from great cartoons, using the same materials and techniques as were used in making the originals. Some limited editions are exact reproductions of frames from the films they represent, while others, such as Chuck Jones’ limited editions, are based on contemporary interpretations of great characters and scenes.

In either case, the animator’s drawing is transferred onto acetate cels, then each is meticulously hand-painted by studio artists. Each piece is hand-numbered in small edition sizes of between 100 and 750. In some cases the finished cels are then signed by the animator.

As the great majority of original cels from the 1940’s, 50’s and 60’s are no longer in existence, limited edition cels allow collectors an unparalleled opportunity to enjoy some of the greatest moments in the history of animation.
