Fractured Fairy Tales Hand-Painted Scene Cel SIGNED by Jay Ward 1988 Rocky and Bullwinkle Show

 The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show Fractured Fairy Tales Scene Cel (Jay Ward, 1989). Edward Everett Horton narrated this fan-favorite segment of the Rocky and Bullwinkle Show. It parodied Fairy Tales, and its very first episode poked fun at "Rapunzel." There were 91 Fractured Fairy Tales produced between 1959 and 1961 and (The First Lady of Animation) June Foray usually provided voices of princesses and witches, often in a "Brooklyn" accent. This is a hand-inked, hand-painted Scene Cel inspired by the show's opening sequence, originally sold at the Dudley Do-Right Emporium located on Sunset Blvd in West Hollywood (1971-2005). This one has been hand signed by Jay Ward (1920 - 1989). The cel is matted with a opening of 9." x 12" and an Condition is Fine. Matted and framed to an an overall size of 18" x 15", and in Fine condition - slight fading on signature, frame has some minor scratches.

The Dudley Do-Right Emporium was a small, eccentric gift shop named after that fearless Canadian Mountie Dudley Do-Right, located on the Sunset Strip in West HollywoodCalifornia.

The emporium was founded and run by Jay Ward, creator of The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show (1959–73). The gift shop was located at 8200 Sunset Boulevard, a few yards from the former Jay Ward Productions (8218 Sunset Blvd.), the tiny studio building where the cartoons were produced, and across the street from the Chateau Marmont. The Dudley Do-Right Emporium opened in 1971 and closed its doors in April 2005.[

The shop was filled with toys, stuffed animals, trinkets, hats, t-shirts, wristwatches, original animation cels, cartoon scripts, recordings of TV themes, and assorted souvenirs, all bearing the likenesses of Dudley Do-RightRocky & BullwinklePeabody and ShermanHoppity HooperGeorge of the JungleTom SlickSuper ChickenBoris & NatashaSnidely Whiplash and the other famous, wacky creations of Jay Ward Studios.

In front of Jay Ward Productions was a 15-foot (4.6 m) statue of Bullwinkle J. Moose holding Rocky the Flying Squirrel. The statue was unveiled to the public at a kick-off party to commemorate "The Bullwinkle Show" joining NBC on September 24, 1961. Following Jay Ward's departure, the statue gradually fell into a state of disrepair and, in July 2013, was taken to DreamWorks Animation to be restored. When the restoration was completed, it was briefly displayed at the Paley Center in Beverly Hills. Since January 2015, it has been on display at the West Hollywood City Hall. It will be reinstalled at a new location, somewhere on the Sunset Strip. In August 2019 the West Hollywood city council decided to permanently place the statue on a traffic island at Sunset and Hollywood

The rotating statue of Bullwinkle holding Rocky was made to mimic the rotating statue of a Las Vegas showgirl on top of a giant billboard for the Sahara Hotel across Sunset Boulevard at the eastern end of the Sunset Strip. A picture of this showgirl statue can also be found as the cover of Gore Vidal's Myra Breckinridge.
