Hand painted limited edition cel featuring Porky Pig. 100 nuts and a squirrel mean something here, simply because “nuts” are what nearly drives Porky nuts in the classic 1939 Looney Tunes short “Porky in Wackyland,” directed by Robert Clampett. In this image, Porky has reached darkest Africa, where with an agility by both himself and his plane, he tiptoes himself over to a world of alternate dimension, in his quest to capture the ever elusive last of the Do-Do birds. In 1994 “Porky in Wackyland” was voted #8 of "The 50 Greatest Cartoons" of all time by members of the animation field. The United States Library of Congress, in 2000 deemed “Porky in Wackyland” “culturally significant” and selected the cartoon for preservation in the National Film Registry. Each piece is signed by Ruth Clampett, daughter of Bob Clampett.

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.
