Color original hand-painted Cel of Woody Woodpecker.
Original Hand-painted Cel of Woody Woodpecker stapled onto a 5x7 hand-painted background card. Cel and background drawn by unknown artist. The background is inscribed by Lantz:"To-Selwyn C. Gamble/with my best wishes/Walter Lantz/and Woody Woodpecker/Dec. 5, 1973". Walter Lantz, the American animation pioneer who also created Oswald Rabbit, first introduced his creation, Woody Woodpecker, in the early 1940s as a supporting actor in an Andy Pandy cartoon. The character was such a huge success that Woody Woodpecker cartoons, consisting of approximately 5,000 drawings each, ran until 1975. The white paint on Woody Woodpecker has cracked and spread onto the cel's background. Minor rust stains on staples, stray ink mark at bottom right of cel. Overall, fine condition.
