This is a cel of Arale from Dr. Slump. I've been informed which part of the series
this cel came from! HON in Hong Kong wrote to me and told me the following:
"On your webpage, you say you don't know where the picture of Arale
of Dr.Slump comes from. In fact, it comes from a movie shown in the
summer, 1994 in Japan. Arale is playing around in the ghost hotel. I
know it because I've just seen this movie in rental video tape and
recognise her clothing. Dr.Slump has been much well-known in HK that
the TV anime rebroadcasts again and again."
Thank you SO much!!
I got it from David Vernal through Marisa Price. There's tissue paper attached to
the cel and I can't remove it, but the lines crossing the cel are folds in the
tissue paper and are not flaws in the cel. The dark blotch at the bottom is
apparently an airbrushed shadow. The outline of it can be seen on the pencil.
