These pieces are what we see on the cartoons themselves...they are the animation drawings that have been traced, inked and painted onto celluloid, then placed over the backgrounds and filmed under the camera. Original Warner Bros. cels are quite rare, but there are a number of them still out there. The images here are thumbnailed and arranged chronologically. As I said before, if my image came from your site, please let me know so that I can credit you if you would like.
