Anyone around here collect animation cels? I can't find a thread on them. My mom has a lot of great Disney stuff -- no production cels, but lots of great official limited cels.

I'm starting slowly, but here's a production cel from the Red & Stimpy season one episode titled "Marooned"

I'd like to get much, much more but the good stuff is expensive.

I've spent hours looking at these at one Con or another. Love 'em, but haven't purchased any yet.

I almost bought an amazing one on eBay once that I'm kicking myself for missing.

I own a few from one of the animated SF series. I'll try to dig it up and post this weekend.

This.
I have seen quite a few nice....ish....ones come up cheaply,but they're always for very minor characters or scenes,and either don't have the douga or come with a crappy reproduction of the matching background cel.

Then occasionally a serious piece with every layer will pop up. Those are the ones to go for,and totally worth waiting for.

But anything really iconic costs megabucks,unless the seller doesn't realize what they have. :(

Still waiting for the right one to come along myself.

Lol. I have a Ren & Stimpy cel from "Fire Dogs" when they catch the baby over my little ones crib. It was my favorite episode in college. Save my baby, save my elephant, save me.... I wish I could figure out how to post pics here. It always says the file is to large.

Get a photobucket account. Upload to that, then use the [img] links it provides to forums.

That was my fave ep too. Laughed till my ribs hurt. :lol:
