Witch Hazel is best know for appearing in Bugs Bunny cartoons, but she has also had cameo appearances in other Warner Brothers cartoons. This particular cel is from an Animaniacs - Pinky and the Brain episode called Spellbound. Technically, this cel should be on the WB Animaniacs page. The voice of Witch Hazel has always been done by June Forey, one of the best voice talents in the business. June Forey also supplies the voices for Rocky the flying squirrel, Natasha, Granny, and many others. When I found out that she was going to be doing a rare, public appearance, I bought this cel and got her sign it.
Although Carrotblanca is a new cartoon, its probably the best that Warner brothers has turned out since the early sixties. It has taken thirty years, but they finally came back to the style that made them great, and, the only real threat to Disney's reign as the top animation studio. If the Warner Brothers studio will keep producing animations with this quality, then the animation industry may really be in a new golden age. As an added bonus, this cartoon has just been released on a self titled video tape with five other cartoons that spoof movies in one way or another. Box Office Bunny is the only other recent cartoon. Sadly, it shows the same lack of quality that many of the Warner Brothers cartoons have suffered with since the sixties. On the plus side, Dripalong Daffy and The Scarlet Pumpernickel are two of the all time classics, and You Ought to Be in Pictures shows a level of creativity that was years ahead of it's time.
See the comments for Carrotblanca above.
This Cel is from the 1990 Warner Brother's short: "Bunny Snatchers". I haven't seen this short (yet) but my guess is that it suffers from the same lack of imagination that virtually all WB animations have been plagued by for the last 30 years. However, for a LOT LESS than a limited edition, I have a one of a kind original of a classic scene.

Each one second of film requires 24 drawings to be produced. These drawings are then
copied on to the acetate and painted by hand. The finished cels are then photographed,
one at a time in front of a background.
Note the studio seal in the lower left corner.
All authentic studio cels now come with a similar seal.

Box Office Bunny is a recent release. It has just been released on a video tape called Carrotblanca. See above.

This is a SeriCel, they are often created as
Limited Editions, using a Lithographic like process to produce a collectors Cel. SeriCels are usually the
lowest priced Animation Art. Many galleries sell them, but most collectors do not value them as much as
an investment. This is the first piece of animation art I bought. I only own a few of this type.
This cel is not what it appears to be. It is actually a modern cel, used as a tie for a Warner Brothers Video tape, "Overtures to Disaster". This tape has many of the opera based, WB cartoons. Unfortunately, most of the cartoons are hacked up. Shop around for the tapes that don't have "edited" cartoons.
