Years of Collected Animation Art Pieces…
Coming to a gallery of your own
I started collecting Animation Art in the mid-80’s. For me it was the nostalgia and fun of seeing old Friends…Cartoon characters from my childhood. I collected so many, I opened one of the nations first brick & mortar all animation art galleries in the US…Cartoon Galleria! And in 1991, I took all I had learned about animation and wrote a book called “Cel Magic” Collecting Animation Art. It sold in book stores and at theme parks like Disneyland and Universal Studios. It also was a big hit on college campuses across the country…some copies are still out there for sale!
This web site is my way to share all I have learned and collected over the years…from model sheets and pencil drawings to seri-cels and original hand painted animation….even some backgrounds and other items of interest; it is all here for you to enjoy, and possibly purchase!
I welcome you to peruse these pages and re-capture some of the fun and excitement cartoons added to our lives…Enjoy!

The Man Himself:
R. Scott Edwards:
Started his first company at age 17, and at 24—in 1980—opened Laughs Unlimited, just the 12th full time comedy club in the entire United States. Scott was fortunate to fall in with comedy greats like Bob Saget, Dave Coulier, Garry Shandling, and many others who helped him develop an extremely successful chain of comedy clubs in Northern California. In turn, he helped develop talents like Paula Poundstone, Brian Posehn, and Dana Carvey, and enjoyed working with icons like Graham Chapman of Monty Python, Pat Paulsen, Soupy Sales, and Tommy Chong.
Scott knows comedy performance and production, having produced three TV series, a number of large concerts, and thousands of live comedy stage shows.
Now Scott is sharing what he’s learned through his books, interactive online courses, podcast, and video archive. Listen and enjoy the experiences and stories about talent from all the greats, from Ellen and Yakov Smirnoff to Paul Reiser and Seinfeld—and even the amazing Robin Williams!
