Item Name: Animated Cartoon Cel Package

Item Number: 1406




Our next item is donated from Disada Productions of Ottawa, Ontario. This set of four framed "cels" of an animated cartoon character known as "The Thing," is valued at $400 in Canadian Funds. Back in 1973, classic animated cartoon characters were drawn on multiple sheets of paper, then traced by hand in ink on sheets of acetate and hand-painted on the reverse side. These "cels" were placed atop a painted background and filmed one frame at a time. The character would "move around" in the final film. These "cels" measure 10 1/2" by 14"
