Private Collection, Toronto


"Dog City" was a 1992-1994 collaborative production between Nelvana and Jim Henson Productions, the former providing the animation and the latter offering live-action and puppeteered scenes. This lot is a multi-cel set-up, with untrimmed cels, featuring the studio-used corresponding background painting.

Nelvana Limited is one of the most highly regarded Toronto-based Canadian animation studios. For the generation who grew up in the 1970s, there are likely fond memories of Nelvana creations.
