“You idiots! You... You fools! Oh, you imbeciles!”
―Cruella to Jasper and Horace

"One Hundred and One Dalmatians" ("101 Dalmatians"), is a 1961 full length animated feature film by Walt Disney Productions. It was adapted from Dodie Smith's 1956 novel of the same name. It stars Rod Taylor as the voice of Pongo and Cate Bauer as the voice of Perdita; with Betty Lou Gerson as the voice of the evil and villainous Cruella de Vil. The animation of all the characters from the film was quite extraordinary. The animators responsible for the villains were Marc Davis who animated Cruella De Vil, and John Lounsbery who animated both Horace and Jasper Badun.

Close up of the Jasper Badun original production animation cel setup.

From former Walt Disney animator Andreas Deja:
"Cruella De Vil's henchmen Jasper and Horace were principally animated by John Lounsbery (and beautifully so), but their final design was created by Milt Kahl based on story man Bill Peet's rough character concepts. These two second rate criminals share a fairly low IQ, but in appearance they form a fun, strong contrasting duo. Jasper is tall, thin and gangly, Horace is tubby, short and  roly-poly. Some of their scenes were based on live action reference, but the animation never looks rotoscoped or floaty."

Frederick Worlock provided the voice for both Horace and Inspector Craven, while J. Pat O'Malley provided the voice for both Jasper and the Colonel. O'Malley had a long history with voice work for Disney: he was the Cockney guy in the "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" sequence in "Mary Poppins," 1964, Cyril Proudbottom, Winkie, and a policeman in "The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad," 1949, Colonel Hathi and Buzzie in "The Jungle Book," 1967, all the character voices in the "The Walrus and the Carpenter" segment (besides Alice), including Tweedledum and Tweedledee from "Alice In Wonderland," 1951.

This is a great multi-cel setup of Jasper Badun smoking a cigar. The cel setup consists of 1) Head cel, 2) Arms and cigar cel, and 3) Cigar smoke cel; and all three hand painted production animation cels are set on a custom hand-painted background. The image of Jasper is large, being an impressive 7 1/4" x 7 1/2". A wonderful piece of animation artwork from one the most recognized Walt Disney feature films of all time!
