This is a hand painted limited edition cel. Grannys' shadow looms as Tweety and Sylvester blame each other for yet another mishap. This limited edition cel began with a drawing by famed Warner Bros. director Friz Freleng. The master character ink line was silkscreened onto acetate along with the Warner Bros. Masters Collection/Friz Freleng seal. Each cel was then expertly hand-painted on the reverse side. The original background was reproduced using the lithography process on acid-free paper. In the final step of production, the edition number was hand-inked on each cel in an edition size of 500. Each piece is signed by the late Friz Freleng. SOLD OUT EDITION, ONLY ONE AVAILABLE.

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.
