Original production cel from the Superman Series, “Little Girl Lost Pt 1,” made by Warner Bros. Animation in the 1990s. The hand-painted cel is matched with a printed background from the original production art.
Superman: The Animated Series based on the DC Comics preeminent character, Superman. Superman: The Animated Series is widely regarded as one of the finest and most faithful adaptations of the character and for its unique animation style and adult-oriented approach. In January 2009, Superman ranked #36 on IGN’s ‘Top 100 Animated Series’ list.
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.
