Extremely Rare Green Warner Bros Closing Credit Title Card (1960’s)

Original Production Animation Cel Artwork

$525.00 $395.00

This is a very rare original/production ANIMATION CEL (with original production art background), featuring a beautiful green circular background, and (we believe…but can’t verify, 1960’s) Warner Brothers shield logo. This item does not have a WB COA with it, as it was not something that was sold as a collectible, but was rather probably originally acquired directly from a WB animator, straight from production. It measures roughly 16½”x12½”. Finding a closing credit title card cells like this is extremely rare, as there would have only been a few of them made, and which were potentially used on multiple cartoons. This is a collectors dream come true!!

Condition: Fine – With handwritten production notes.

Warner Bros Cartoons

Warner Bros. Cartoons, Inc. was the in-house division of Warner Bros. during the Golden Age of American animation. One of the most successful animation studios in American media history, it was primarily responsible for the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies theatrical cartoon short subjects. The characters featured in these cartoons, including Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Sylvester and Tweety, are among the most famous and recognizable characters in the world. Many of the creative staff members at the studio, including directors and animators such as Chuck Jones, Friz Freleng, Robert McKimson, Tex Avery, Robert Clampett, Arthur Davis and Frank Tashlin, are considered major figures in the art and history of traditional animation.

Warner Bros. Cartoons was founded in 1933 as Leon Schlesinger Productions, an independent company which produced the popular Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies animated short subjects for release by Warner Bros. Pictures. In 1944, Leon Schlesinger sold the studio to Warner Bros., who continued to operate it as Warner Bros. Cartoons, Inc. until 1963. Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies were briefly subcontracted to Freleng’s DePatie–Freleng Enterprises studio from 1964 until 1967. The Warner Bros. Cartoons studio briefly re-opened in 1967 before shutting its doors for good two years later, in 1969.
