from the 1975 Film
Signed by Director, Legendary Looney Tunes Animator CHUCK JONES

Rikki Tikki Tavi was one of Chuck Jones made-for-TV masterpieces. It's one of our personal favorites of all time. Made for CBS, and one of three of The Jungle Books (by Rudyard Kipling) he adapted for TV along with Mowgli's Brothers and The White Seal. It aired in 1975 on CBS and this cel was used in that actual production!

This cel is of the main character, Rikki Tikki Tavi. The cel is 12-field (approx. 10.5" x 12.5") and includes a photo-reproduction background.


NOTE: The Charles Scott Gallery is a Linda Jones Enterprise Preferred Gallery, so your artwork is direct from the company started by Chuck and his daughter and will come with a LJE COA. You can't get better provenance. Note: if you are purchasing this after 7/1/2023, contact us to make sure we still have it in stock - thanks.


On the one hand, Chuck Jones needs no introduction, on the other hand, it’s incredibly impressive to see a few of his accomplishments laid out in one paragraph. He is of course one of the legendary directors of the classic Looney Tunes shorts from Warner Brothers that feature iconic characters like Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Wile E Coyote, Yosemite Sam and more. He directed many of the WWII Private Snafu shorts, then left WB in 1962 to start his own company where he made a new series of “Tom and Jerry” shorts. His company also made the classic Dr. Seuss’ “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!” - Chuck personally convinced Dr Seuss to let his book be turned into an animated cartoon. His company went on to make many other animated classics like The Phantom Tollbooth, Rikki Tikki Tavi and later, Mrs. Doubtfire. Along the way he won three Acadamy Awards, eventually also picking up a Lifetime Achievement Oscar. In 1994, one of his most acclaimed WB shorts, “What’s Opera, Doc?” with Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd was voted the greatest cartoon of all time. He formed another company with his daughter, Linda Jones Enterprises and in the 1980’s/90’s began formally marketing and selling the animated and fine artwork he had created over the course of his amazing career. And in 1999 he founded the non-profit Chuck Jones Center for Creativity. He even has a star on the Hollywood walk of fame!
