SpongeBob SquarePants Production Background and Cels 1999(126 views)
Description: It is a little know fact that of all the popular cartoons in the last 30 years, SpongeBob had the fewest hand painted cels and backgrounds created, even though the show has been on television since 1999. Unlike the other cartoons, SpongeBob SquarePants cels and backgrounds were hand painted the first season but immediately went to computer the next year. All other years the series was computer generated so no new art was created. Best calculations are that only about 6000 backgrounds were created for the show and only a fraction of these still exist for collectors. These SpongeBob setups (Original Cel and Original Background)are highly collectible, considering there are over 16 years of children who cherish this cartoon and have yet to start collecting the cartoons that were part of their memories. The background seen here is from the Episode "Jellyfishing". It has been matched up with cels of Bikini Bottom fish and SpongeBob from another episode. Each of these pieces are unique and have been authenticated and are accompanied with a Certificate of Authenticity.
