1979 Doctor Snuggles Original Animation Cel & Production Background & Characters For Sale
1979 DOCTOR SNUGGLES Original Animation Cel & Production Background & characters
"SATURDAY'S TOYS Presents..."an original hand paintedbackgroundwith hand-painted cels from DOCTOR SNUGGLES (1979).
This animated children’s program wasanimated atTop Craft
Co., Ltd of Tokyo, Japan; and was produced by Polyscope Production and
Doctor Snuggles aired in the United States on the
Nickelodeon cable network from 1979 – 1980. The show consisted of only thirteen
half-hour episodes. Lead characters
included Dennis the Badger; Doctor Snuggles; Knobby Mouse; Miss Nettles; Granny
Toots; Matilda Junkbottom; the Rabbits; Dreamy Boom Boom (the rocket ship) and
The lead character was voiced by Peter Ustinov (also starred
in “Blackbeard’s Ghost” for Walt Disney; and was among the few who would see
Walt on his final visit to the Walt Disney Studio prior to his passing on Dec.
Top Craft would perhaps be best known for its partnership
with Rankin / Bass in creating classic children’s animation including The
Jackson 5ive (1971); 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1972); Willie Mays and the
Say-Hey Kid (1972); Tom Sawyer (1972); Kid Power (1972-1974); Frosty’s Winter
Wonderland (1976); The Hobbit (1977) and many more.
This particular background is 10" x 11.5"; and the cel is 9" x 10.5. Cel has two layers of animation. It appears that over time, the two cels have stuck together. It's possible that they could be separated again, but we wouldn't want to risk damaging the paint during separation. Cels are punched at top edge for mountingwith three pegs for filming.
This early cel set-up is from Episode 2 - "The Fabulous Mechanical Mathilda Junkbottom" andfeatures Dennis the Badger, Knobby Mouse, the Rabbits, and Doctor Snuggles.
Very good condition; worthy of the finest animation archive or museum collection.
