Vintage 80's Donkey Kong Cel Cereal Commercial Animation Cel Sketch

 Sold Out 

Awesome Original Production cel sketch from the 1983 Donkey Kong Cereal Commercial. This sketch was hand drawn by an animator before being copied on to plastic acetate and made into cel. This particular sketch is a large image of a cross eyed silly looking Donkey Kong and some scribbled animators notation. Sketch does have some normal wear and light wrinkling from being used in production and then stored away including a large fold in the middle, but it's in amazing shape for being 29 years old! I am fairly certain that this is a pre-production piece made for a sequence that was later cut from the commercial. If you watch the commercial here: you'll see that this frame doesn't appear to be used. It came with several other pieces of art from the commercial from a reputable cel dealer so we're sure it's legitimate. Being a preproduction piece makes it even more rare than the pieces you see on screen as unused art is often thrown immediately in the studio and rarely made available to collectors or galleries. A really fantastic and interesting piece for a video game memorabilia collector. What could be better than owning an original piece of video game history?

Please note that most of the items we sell are vintage collectibles often more than a decade old so please expect some wear and discoloration. We will always try to note when these things are present or if something has survived in mint shape, but we want to make sure you're doubly aware. We're always happy to take additional pictures as well so please ask by emailing us at if you want to see another angle or a specific aspect more clearly. Thanks so much for shopping at Avane!
