In 1962, legendary animation director, Bob Clampett created “Beany and Cecil,” an animated series modeled after the successful puppet show, “Time For Beany.” The series, like the puppet show, featured Beany, Cecil the Seasick Sea Serpent, and a plethora of other characters, who today remain as quirky as they are original, as their adventures embark them on surreal parodies of contemporary events and places.
Clampett realized that he needed an audience identification figure and settled on a little boy who he saw at lunch at a Wilshire Boulevard diner. Clampett sketched this little Jewish boy wearing a Yamulke right on his napkin. He later added a propeller up top and Beany was born. In the file folder containing this drawing Bob Clampett added some interesting information. Note: Lil’ Lenny born Feb. 5, 1946. In late 1948 when he was model for “Beany”- He was 2 ½ years old.
Offered for the first time in twenty years, are actual hand inked and painted production cels taken from the Beany and Cecil cartoons produced in the early 1960’s. The backgrounds are fine art giclee reproductions from the originals. This is a rare opportunity to capture actual imagery taken from one of the most beloved independently-made series in cartoon history, created by a true master of the animation genre.
