Cut 204. This cheerful oversized cel of Nils and Carrot came up for auction randomly. It is especially good of the two aviators, presumably waving good-bye to a friend they have met or returning to their flockmates after an adventure. Sequence number: A43.

Notice that the bird who is giving them a lift is not Mårten the white barn goose, but a black bird with scruffy feathers quite unlike those of Akka, the leader of the wild flock Nils joins. It came up on the same day with a cel featuring Gorgo, the black-feathered eagle whom Nils rescues from a cage, so this might come from an episode featuring this secondary character. (His companion might also be Bataki the raven, but I’m not sure that this bird is big enough to carry Nils and Carrot.)

Interestingly, the cel was oversized in both dimensions, though the sketch was the usual size. That suggests that the cut included some kind of camera pan that required the cels to be somewhat larger than normal.
