This limited edition was inspired by a scene from the Merrie Melodies cartoon "Tweety Pie," directed by Friz Freleng. This short was both the first to combine the intimitable pair of Tweety of Sylvester (called Thomas in his short), as well as the first Warner Bros. cartoon to win an Academy Award. This scene finds the intrepid feline bringing down the ceiling in a failed attempt at a feathery snack. The concept for this art was conceived of and developed by Mr. Freleng. It is the last in a series of three unsigned Friz Freleng limited editions that were produced after his death in May of 1995. This limited edition cel began with a drawing by famed Warner Bros. director Friz Freleng. The master character line was silkscreened onto an acetate sheet (or "cel") along with the Warner Bros. Masters Collection/ Friz Freleng seal. Each cel was then expertly hand-painted on the reverse side. The original background was reproduced using the lithography process on acid-free paper. In the final step of production, the edition number was hand-inked on each cel in an edition number of 500.
