Original production cel features Marvin, K9 and Instant Martians from the Nike Commercial “Hare Jordan,” made by Warner Bros. Animation Unit in the 1990s. The hand-painted cel is matched with a printed background from the original production art.
A production cel is one-of-a-kind and used in the creation of an animated film or cartoon short. It is hand-painted and photographed over a background painting to create a frame of the 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 cel with an original background is very rare. The move to computerized animation severely curtailed the supply of artwork on the market.
