THE UB IWERKS COLLECTION
FRAMED Hand-Painted Limited Edition Cel, 1994
"The Cuckoo Murder Case"
with FLIP THE FROG

Comes Matted and Framed and with the Original Seal and Certificate of Authenticity

Ub Iwerks is an animation legend - having made significant contributions to the original Mickey Mouse cartoons and then going on to create Flip the Frog and even direct Looney Tunes cartoons. This is one of four limited edition cels created as the "Ub Iwerks Collection" in 1994. The included original COA states that there is a signature but it has long since faded. The cel has the original frame which is nice but is not pristine since it is almost 25 years old. It is based on "The Cuckoo Murder Case" from 1930. It is #200 of 250. The framed dimensions are 18 7/8" x 15 3/4".

More about Ub Iwerks - one of Iwerks' most long-lasting contributions to animation was a refined version of a sketch drawn by Disney that would later go on to become Mickey Mouse. Iwerks went on to do much of the animation for the early Mickey Mouse and Silly Symphonies cartoons, including Steamboat Willie, The Skeleton Dance and The Haunted House, before a fallout with Disney led to Iwerks' resignation from the studio in January 1930. Iwerks' final Mickey Mouse cartoon would be 1930's The Cactus Kid. Following his separation with Disney, Iwerks, operating under Iwerks Studio, would go on to create the characters Flip the Frog and Willie Whopper along with the ComiColor Cartoons series as part of a contract with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, but the new studio failed to rival its competitors. Iwerks would go on to direct two Looney Tunes cartoon shorts for Leon Schlesinger Productions and several Color Rhapsody cartoons for Screen Gems before joining Disney again in 1940, after which he worked with special visual effects on productions such as 1946's Song of the South.
