Real Monsters Original 1990's Production Cel Animation Drawing

Production Drawings are the building blocks of animation; through these drawings, the animator carefully plans the look and movement of each character.  Drawings are refined (often using different colored pencils) until the animator is satisfied with the look, detail, and degree of motion for each character. At this point, cels are created by tracing  drawings onto clear acetate.  Production Drawings provide perhaps the most intimate look in the animation process

 This drawing was actually used to create an episode of Ahhh!!! Real Monsters

This cel went under the camera & was actually used in the production of the hit Nickelodeon animated series AAAHH!!! REAL MONSTERS.   

Aaahh!!! Real Monsters is an American animated television series about adolescent monsters in training, developed by Klasky Csupo for Nickelodeon. The show ran for four seasons on Nickelodeon's main United States cable channel and was rerun on Nicktoons Network until 2006.
The show focuses on three monsters in particular (Ickis, Oblina, and Krumm) who attend a school for monsters under a city dump and learn to frighten humans. Many of the episodes revolve around the monsters making it to the surface in order to perform "scares" as class assignments. The show takes place in a landfill near New York City, in Newark, New Jersey.

Krumm - Like the rest of his family's, Krumm's eyeballs are not attached to his body. Thus, he is usually seen carrying them in his hands; if he requires the use of both hands, he can carry his eyes delicately in his mouth. His most valuable tool in scaring is his overwhelming armpit stench, though he doesn't depend on it. He tends to be more gluttonous than his companions, and he has acrophobia.

Ickis is the son of the legendary monster Slickis, a fact that has left him with a bit of an inferiority complex. He is short and magenta, with long ears and feet that look like jester shoes. Because of this, his scares often fail when he is mistaken for a rabbit. Ickis has the ability called "looming," which allows him to inflate himself to an enormous size, though he has some difficulty accomplishing this feat consistently. Ickis is a student at the Monster Academy, a boarding school for young monsters learning to scare. Ickis initially wore glasses in the episode "Monsters, Get Real," but this character trait was soon dropped.

Oblina comes from a wealthy monster family, and is considered to be Gromble's best student. She is shaped like a black and white candy cane. One of her favorite methods of scaring humans is reaching within herself and pulling out her internal organs, and she also has considerable talent for shapeshifting into far more terrifying forms than her default. She also has the ability to induce nightmares in humans, by sticking a finger in their ear and tickling them while they sleep.  {from Wikipedia}5.
