I am enclosing one of the United Edition cels that are sold to the art galleries. [Item not included.] In case you are not knowledgeable of these the Circle Galleries and Landsberg's have been selling these framed for $400. I hope this will be helpful to you and those working with you - to gain some revenue for your cause. My best wishes to you and yours".Friz Freleng (1905-1995) began his film career as an animator in 1924 before joining Walt Disney's operations during 1927. Then at Winkler Picture Corporation in New York, he worked for the next three years on Krazy Kat cartoons. Ever progressing due to his talent and creativity, Freleng became a director and a creator of cartoons with Warner Brothers for the creative team of the Merrie Melodies and Looney Tune cartoons. He was one of the first animators to give definitive personalities to cartoon characters, including "Bugs Bunny". While supervising his hand-picked team of animators and writers at Warners, Feleng directed Knighty Knight Bugs (1958 which won an Academy Award). He went on to establish DePatie-Freleng Enterprises, Incorporated, where he produced and created the Pink Panther. Freleng directed these Academy Award winners: Tweety Pie (1947), Speedy Gonzales (1955) and Birds Anonymous (1957). "Cels", short for celluloid, were transparent sheets on which objects were drawn or painted as part of the animation process. With the advent of computer graphics, cels are now seldom used. Lightly toned around edges. Corners lightly creased. Otherwise fine condition.
