This fantastic drawing came from one of the overlooked jewels of Animation, Cats Don't Dance". I can't say enough good things about this animation. If you haven't seen it, rent it, or buy it. It's really too bad that Turner Feature Animation didn't get a chance to produce any other animations. This animation was colored on computer, so no cels were made, and very few of the drawings were released.
Here is a cool little cel I recently got from Van Eaton Galleries. I was looking around and found a stack of new Simpsons cels. This one was on top. What I like about this one is that it is instantly recognizable to most Simpsons fans. That's one of the things I like most about Van Eaton Galleries, every time I go in there, there is someting new, and unusual to see.
I am trying to get this cel on tape.
I have every reason to believe that it is from Krusty gets
Busted. BUT, It's not there! Fox has apperently edited this
cel out to make space for more commercials. If you have a copy
of the ORIGINAL Krusty gets Busted, please contact me,
I would like to get a copy. Simpsons fans must checkout the Who Shot Mr. Burns
Viherjuuri - ad agency's "help wanted" commercial. ANIMATED BY ANI-MATO J-E NYSTROM - COPYRIGHT VIHERJUURI/FINLAND
If this image don't look familiar to you, you are probably
not from Finland. This cel were created by Jan-Eric Nyström,
a very talented animator and (I assume) computer programmer from
Finland. He contacted me in November, about my animation page,
and I was able to talk him out of a few examples of his work.
He has been animating for many years and has created many ways
of making his job easier. He also has an animation art collection
of his own including personalized sketches from some of Disney's
top animators. I am envious. All of this and more can be seen
at his web site.
Two more examples of his work can be seen
on our Art of TV Commercials page.
Woody Woodpecker Limited Edition Hand Painted Cel
Most of the cels in my collection are unique pieces of art. They
are each a one of a kind painting, that has been seen by millions
of people in movies or on TV. This cel is different. Several hundred
exactly like it were made and signed by Walter Lantz specifically
to be sold to collectors. Normaly I don't collect limited edition
cels, but this one was a good buy and had a signature I wanted.
Helen Nables from Stay Tuned
This was my first piece signed by a director. Chuck Jones has
always been, and will always be, my favorite Warner Brothers Director. This
cel was from the movie Stay Tuned. Part of the movie takes
place in a cartoon. This is Helen Nabels (Pam Dawber) who seams
to be upset, after discovering that she has been turned into a
The Pink Panther from an unknown cartoon
This cel, and the pencil sketch you can see behind it, were signed
by Friz Freling. Signatures do make a cel more valuable, but usually
only a little bit. I wouldn't have bought this cel with out Friz's
signature, but I wouldn't have paid much more for it either.
Dennis the Menace
I ran across this cel and liked it. I know that it is from Tail
of the Dog, made in 1971. If you can add anything to that,
please E-mail me.
