Original Layout, Copy Layout, Background, and Screenshot
Sakura and the Wonderful Teacher
Sakura to Suteki na Sensei
Air Date:  October 20, 1998
Animation Director:  Kimizuka Katsunori

About the Scene: Toya had gone up to Sakura's room to bring her a snack of course interrupting her time with Kero so this layout is of Toya staring intently at Kero trying to make him blink....

Why?: It's a pretty funny expression I had thought that when I bought it he was teasing Sakura but that did not turn out to be the case... lol :) But it is still pretty funny, staring down Kero! 

About the Layout: It looks like this layout also had some contention as to what his expression would look like when he is staring down Kero I have the original layout and a copy of what they finally decided upon, as well as the original background. The actual screenshot is the thumbnail. In pretty excellent condition sometimes backgrounds and layouts have a hard time making it across the Pacific. There is a bend in the layout but a few months pressed in between some other cels/layouts it should be fine.
