RICHARD SCARRY (1919-1994)

"Huckle and Sally Cat, Lowly Worm, et al." Animation production cel.

Hand-painted cel setup likely related to "The Busy World of Richard Scarry," the animated series which ran from 1994 to 1997, co-produced by CINAR (Canada), France Animation, and Paramount Television. 192x260 mm; 7 1/2x10 1/4 inches, image.
The cel features some of Richard Scarry's most beloved creations: The cat siblings Huckle and Sally, Lowly Worm, and (presumably) Mrs. Hippo. A scene matching print background is included, very likely prepared by the studio. Cels for this series are exceedingly difficult to find; this one originated in Canada, and the reverse of the frame bears a Quebec frame shop label.
