Here's my contribution. I just recently got these back from the framer.

Schoolhouse Rock cels
Verb: That's What's Happening

Original and production used.

Most of my life I have wanted some original production cels from a cartoon I was familiar.

I couldn't be prouder of this. It's going to look great in my 1970s theater lobby.

Where do you even start to look for these? I'd love some Batman cels for the kid's room.

I have a few Original Miyazaki/Studio Ghibli production cels from Nausicaa, Laputa, Kiki's Delivery Service, Porco Rosso and Totoro, many which I bought long ago at ridiculous prices, long before anime was known and distributed in the states. I also have a few nice Akira cels, most purchased from Carl Macek/Streamline Pictures, the first distributor of Akira in the US. Most of my collection is from what anime fans call "old school anime", from the golden period of anime (1980s-1990s). Been an animation and anime fan most of my life, but not crazy about today's anime.
I'd love to see your cels, especially the Ghibli and Akira stuff!

Wow, I missed this, but no way I have that kind of money.

Anybody get any new cels lately? I have not.
