Inspired by Chuck Jones 1953 cartoon “Duck Dodgers and the 24th and a Half Century” it is considered one of the greatest Looney Tunes cartoons ever made! This sericel features Daffy Duck as space hero Duck Dodgers, Porky Pig as his assistant, and Marvin the Martian as ‘Commander, Flying Saucer X-2’.
In 1994, it was voted #4 of the 50 Greatest Cartoons of all time by members of the animation field. In 2004, it was retrospectively nominated for a Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation.
Serigraph cels also know as a sericel are carefully transferred by a talented artist to ink on paper. The serigraphers created separate screens, one for each individual color, from which the edition was printed onto acetate. By using this meticulous serigraph process, the hand-crafted quality of an original cel was achieved.
