This is an original production animation model cel from the television series "The Jetsons." * Here's Rosie the Robot, appearing in this cel in two different poses. * Bob Singer's signature appears in black Sharpie at the bottom of the cel. * Bob Singer is an American animation artist, character designer, layout and background artist and storyboard director of animated television programs, most memorably of several Hanna Barbara productions such as The Flintstones, Jonny Quest, Scooby-Doo, Yogi Bear, Droopy, Tom and Jerry, The Jetsons, The Smurfs, Superfriends, and the Harlem Globe Trotters cartoons. * * George Jetson is married and lives with his family in the Skypad Apartments in Orbit City, where all homes and businesses are raised high above the ground on adjustable columns in the Googie style, reflective of Seattle's Space Needle and the Theme Building of the Los Angeles International Airport. George is married to Jane, the homemaker, and the couple have two children: teenage daughter Judy; and preteen son Elroy. Housekeeping is seen to by a robot maid, Rosie, handling chores not otherwise rendered trivial by the home's numerous push-button Space Age-envisioned conveniences. The family has a dog named Astro, who talks with an initial consonant mutation in which every word begins with an 'R', as if speaking with a growl.Jetson's workweek is typical of his era: three hours a day, three days a week. His boss is Cosmo Spacely, the bombastic owner of the company Spacely Space Sprockets. Spacely has a competitor, H. G. Cogswell, owner of the rival company Cogswell Cogs (sometimes known as Cogswell's Cosmic Cogs). Jetson commutes to work in an aerocar that resembles a flying saucer with a transparent bubble top. Daily life is leisurely, assisted by numerous labor-saving devices, which occasionally break down with humorous results. Despite this, everyone complains of exhausting hard labor and difficulties of living with the remaining inconveniences. * * Original Animated Cel, hand-painted, with peg holes along the bottom edge Overall Size of the Cel: 10 1/2" x 12 1/2" Title: "Rosie the Robot"Date: June 20, 1962 * Excellent Condition -ready to be matted and framedThis is an original cel used in production.
