SpongeBob RARE Key Master Setup Production Cel WITH Background Nickelodeon 1999:
SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTSRARE KEY MASTER SETUP: Production Cel and Matching Production Background AS SEEN ON SCREENfrom Nickelodeon, 1999FIRST SEASON: PICKLES EPISODE
Matted and ready to frame, with a Charles Scott Gallery Certificate of Authenticity!Every drawing and cel of Spongebob is a great image - that's one of the things we love about this cartoon - it's very similar to The Simpsons in this way. It's drawn with such physical life and comedy that every frozen frame is hysterical. And this is no exception
In fact - THIS IS A RARE AND INCREDIBLE PIECE! It is a VERY rare Key Master Setup. Which means it is comprised of both the production cel AND the hand-painted production background that match - and were seen EXACTLY like this on screen. In fact, we've shown a screen-capture above of the moment from the eposide (Pickles, 1999) when it is shown. And WHAT AN IMAGE! A huge full-figure image of Spongebob!!
We will mount this gorgeous piece of art in an acid-free, 4-ply paper mat that measures 11" x 14" - so you can just buy your own frame and hang it in your home gallery. We only use archival/acid-free materials in mounting your artwork. NOTE: in most cases we have not yet mounted the art in a mat, so if you wish to have us leave it unmounted let us know IMMEDIATELY when you make the purchase, as we will often mat it within minutes.
SHIPPING COST INCLUDES PRIORITY SHIPPING AND INSURANCE!
NOTE: There is the an seller that has this text in their Spongebob Cel sales: "ANY OTHER COAS THAT OTHER SELLERS USE ON THAT DO NOT LOOK LIKE THE ONE I PROVIDE, PICTURED BELOW, WITH THE CEL, OR DRAWING,ARE FAKE."Of course this is untrue and is merely a sales tactic.It should be no surprise that, while their Spongebob cels may be legitimate, the seller that uses this tactic has been selling fake cels from other cartoons for years. Their sale descriptions are often vague and deceptive and do not include the word "production" on non-Spongebob items.
We thought we'd use this to put out a general warning:You should absolutely always be curious and cautious when purchasing from any seller, as there are individuals out there who fake items, create fake COA's, etc. (fosland/fosworld is a consistent example). You should ALWAYS purchase froma well known, established gallery - one that does not need these aggressive tactics. These galleries WILL havetheir own COA's, as we do (Van Eaton is an excellent example). Feel free to contact us about this or any other art (even art sold by others) if you ever have any questions. Galleries like ours will always be happy to pass on actual knowledge about productions and production art. And do your homework - there's a great deal of knowledge out there in the internet - to help. Finally,the same seller who uses these aggressive tactics also suggests that cels should be purchased as "investments," which is not the correct reason to purchase animation art. You should purchase cels because you love them, not because an individual has promised you they will increase in value. Because they may not. But the happiness they bring from evoking the nostalgia of our past is priceless!
