Cels from some episodes seem to hit the market more than cels from others.  For example, cels from episodes 98 & 99 of the original series seem to turn up more than any other show.  This page is to feature cels from episodes that seem to be better represented than most.

 

gatch98_titlesg small.jpg (8733 bytes)

The following cels are from episode #98.

gatch98_81cel small.jpg (5953 bytes)

The cel.

Towards the end of the first series, Joe began to have violent headaches.  He started acting stranglely and even missed a mission.  Here, Ken ponders the absence of his friend.

This is a 2-layer cel, but the layers don't quite match.  Here, the missing Joe finally turns up, hence the surprised faces!

The cel & non-matching background.

As seen on TV.

  This is one of Joe's attacks.  The original background must have been paired with a different cel, so someone substituted a background that makes the cel look as though it was from a haunted-house episode...!

The cel below demonstrates my "same episode" theory.  It was purchased about a year after the upper cel - in a different part of Japan!  Its background (not pictured) also differs from the televised version.

gatch98_263bcel small.jpg (4891 bytes)

The cel.

gatch98_263b tv small.jpg (5865 bytes)

In episode #98, and old woman befriends Joe.  It's later learned that her son is working for Galacter.  Joe is about to teach the fool a lesson, when Ken stops him....

Over time, I found three cels from this shot.

How the cel looks on TV.

Here are another two cels from the same sequence.  Again, one of the cels was paired with a non-matching BG (more haunted-house action!).  The other cel came with the matching BG (and working door!), but the lines had faded quite a bit...

gatch98_342b small.jpg (6938 bytes)

The cel and matching bachground.

In episode #99, Joe's mental condition continues to deteriorate.   The other members of the group finally become aware of his problems.

Here, he gets up after an attack.

With the rest of the team in trouble, Joe heads to the control room of the ship ( in order to fly to their rescue).

There was only one cel of Joe made, and it was "slid" into the shot.  This made it appear that the elevator was working...!

gatch99_364 small.jpg (8173 bytes)

The cel w/door open to show lift.

This is Joe, madly trying to control the ship.

In the show, the lift's door opens to reveal the other four team members.  (The door is actually a yellow painted cel.)  It was scanned open to show the lift's inner chamber.

Unfortunately, the cel of the others wasn't with this when it was found.
