Comic Mint, your best source for rare, kooky, and classic animation art, is pleased to offer this original production cel of Kimba the White Lion, running in a classic motion across a stunning landscape. 

The cel was purchased many years ago from Mandarake in Japan, and the cel is hand-inked and hand-painted, a one-of-a-kind piece that was used in this classic TV series!

The show was produced in Japan, where it was known as "Jungle Emperor". The story and characters were created by Osamu Tezuka, adapted from his own manga which was first published in 1950.  Jungle Emperor / Kimba the White Lion was made in 1965 as a joint production between Tezuka's Mushi Productions and NBC Enterprises. 

Kimba the White Lion is often described as leading the way for modern anime. It was the first anime made in color, beating Speed Racer to the screen by a year. In Kimba, Tezuka established the expressive character of anime, with a much wider spectrum of both paints and animation techniques than in his black-and-white series that had gone before, vividly depicting characters' emotions through color and a wide array of visual poses, animation tricks, and exaggerations. And in spite of the show's chronological age it is actually (still) far ahead of most modern anime in its use of the medium. Tezuka exploited the possibilities of animation with superb imagination and storytelling skills. The stylized characters can express their emotions, motives, and intentions in an instant. Color itself was used in wonderful and powerful ways.
