Classic Animation

Snap Crackle & Pop animation cel

This weekend I wasa lucky enough to purchase a nice group of animation cels, drawings and concept art from Playhouse Pictures. Playhouse closed up their studio in LA a few years ago and it is great to pick up some of the art at the flea market.

Wow, these sure look like classic 50's commercial animation art! Beauties...

You picked these up at a flea market? I used to work there... the history on the walls alone was incredible.
Lucky find!

I wish I could have gone to the auction/sale when they closed. I heard about it a few weeks after it happened.

Yeah, it was pretty big... bittersweet in a way. It was like stepping back in time working there.

Were you able to get anything at the sale? From the little of what I have seen, they must have had a treasure trove of old material.

Not a lick. I was out of town the weekend they had the sale. My loss.
