"Ravishing Ronald" Bugs Bunny Limited Edition Pan Cel #22/100 (Warner Brothers, 2000). In Bunny Hugged (1951), Bugs works for wrestler Ravishing Ronald (based on then-popular wrestling star Gorgeous George). Ronald's opponent is the frightening, muscle-bound Crusher, whose pummeling of Ronald brings Bugs to the ring as "The Masked Terror." Here is a rare limited edition pan cel from the beginning of that Chuck Jones-directed short, as the genteel Ronald is brought in on a platter, with Bugs revealed as his mascot. This one doesn't show up too often, having been a quick sell-out of only 100 pieces (this is #30). Cel includes a print background; it's matted with an opening of 23.75" x 10". Animation legend Chuck Jones (1912 - 2002) hand-signed the cel, which also includes a Linda Jones seal in the lower right. Fine condition.

SHIPPING: We strive to ship within 1 day of cleared payment. We treat every item we sell with the extra care it deserves. Cels, drawings and sculptures are packed so that they will stay safe during every step of the shipping process. Due to the packing materials we use our shipping prices may seem higher than other sellers who might put a cel into a tube or thin envelope. We are not making a profit on shipping. Only the cost we pay is passed along to you. Please let us know if you need to receive your purchase by a particular date. Email with any questions or concerns.
INTERNATIONAL BUYERS TAKE NOTE: Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding/buying. These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight (shipping) company or when you pick the item up; do not confuse them for additional shipping charges. We do not mark merchandise values below value or mark items as "gifts" - US and International government regulations prohibit such behavior. All Customs Forms will reflect the ACTUAL price that the bidder paid for the merchandise. [For example, I will not claim on the customs form that the bidder paid $10.00, if the bidder actually paid $30.00] Please do not ask us to do so.
Note: All items are shipped FOB. This means that the sellers (The Cricket Gallery’s) liability for the item ends upon our delivery of the package to the shipping agent. It is the Buyers responsibility to insure the package against loss, damages or other unforeseen circumstances. Should the Buyer want The Cricket Gallery, to provide insurance we will do so at the Buyer’s request in writing and upon the payment of an additional charge for such insurance. Buyers outside the USA are likewise responsible for insurance as well as all taxes, tariffs, customers and other charges imposed for international shipments.
