This is an ORIGINAL hand-painted 1-piece animation production cel on acetate-illustrator cartoon art from the original show FROM 1961& 62- simply cartoon art at it’s best- a beautifully hand outlined and hand painted image of Top Cat’s Officer Dibble, this is a RARE piece of cartoon history. I would think this would be quite spectacular framed and hanging on a wall! This is a very large image on a cel of OFFICER DIBBLE in DRAG trying to catch TC and the gang- this is a Hanna Barbera cartoon-the image is almost 5″ tall itself and about 3 3/4″ wide – so the image is quite large –the image is DEAD IN THE CENTER OF THE CEL —–the background is just a piece of paper to show you the cel. Top Cat was first broadcast on television in the US between September 1961 and April 1962-and only ran for a total 30 episodes–so all this is quite RARE and was used in the show once usually and then stored. And his lazy workshy motor-pool platoon. In the UK, the show was renamed Boss Cat when it was first airred on BBC1 because. Was also the name of a brand of cat food! Top Cat – is the indisputable leader of the gang, Top Cat is the sharp talking alley cat barely able to keep one step ahead of the law. TC to his friends, he resides in a trashcan in the alley, where he gets as much sleep as he can. His fast talking and card shark wiles owe much to the scheming plans of Master Sgt. Ernest Bilko in The Phil Silvers Show. His gang: Fancy Fancy, Spook, Benny, Brain and Choo Choo. They are co nstantly scheming, their failed social climbing is observed by the local patrolman, Officer Dibble , who tries his best to evict the gang from Hoagy’s Alley where they live. This will be known as cel- 114-4– this is written in black marker across the bottom as some from of cataloging them to use. This is a full sheet, which is about 12″ X 10 1/2″ overall in size with the image as shown and is in good condition with no rips or tears unless stated here but they do all need some cleaning. All of these have been used probably once so they are not perfect nor are they damaged in any noticeable way or I WILL STATE THAT in my listing above. It is guaranteed to be an original production hand painted animation cel and not a copy in any form. You might want to add me to you r favorites list.
