ABOUT THE IMAGE: In Elmer’s eyes, it’s more than soap that has him over the edge with Bugs Bunny ruining what would otherwise be a “westful wee-tweat”. In the title cel for Bob Clampett’s classic, “Wabbit Twouble,” the graffiti-like lettering against the picturesque canyons of Jellostone National Park, spell out more than the demise of Elmer’s camping trip.
ABOUT THE MEDIUM: This limited edition cel set is a recreation from the classic Warner Bros. cartoon, “Wabbit Twouble.” The cel set begins with a master inking from the animation with is then silk screened onto celluloid.
