"A Charlie Brown Christmas"
Production Animation Cel with Reproduction Background - See below
of Charlie Brown Directing the Christmas Show!
from Charles Schulz, Bill Melendez and Lee Mendelson, 1965

FROM THE STUDIO/SOPWITH

Comes with a Studio Certificate of Authenticity, and the Peanuts seal!

We are honored to be part of the studio gallery program, which means we can offer you amazing Peanuts animation art direct from the studio vaults. And this piece, based on the characters by Charles Schultz is a knock-out! We were given this by the studio. 

This is of course the rarest Peanuts art there is - this hand-painted cel is almost over 57 years old! These are almost impossible to find simply the most sought after cels from the Peanuts. It of course features Charlie Brown speaking to the cast of the Christmas show!  We've shown a screen-capture above of when the cel setup appears in the film at approximately the 9:50 mark!

The background was not available so animator Larry Leichliter found the exact frame in the film and hand-drew a recreation of the background line-art.  That hand-drawn recreation comes with this purchase - along with a print of the recreation.  So you can choose to create a diptych display if you'd like that has the print under Charlie Brown and the recreation of the hand-drawn background in another aperture.

The artwork is 12-field animation so approximately 10.5" x 12.5".
