Jeff Bergman did the voices for Bugs, Daffy and Elmer becoming the first person besides Mel Blanc, (who had died a year before) to have the honor of providing Bugs’ and Daffy’s voices.
Each production cel is one-of-a-kind and was used in the creation of an animated film or television show. Each is hand-painted, and has been photographed over a background painting to create a frame of the finished production. Because one background is used under a sequence of cels, the production art is usually sold with a reproduction of the original background. A production cel with an original background is very rare and has a much higher value. The move to computerized animation has severely curtailed the supply of artwork on the market.
