Marten Toonder Studios and Hans G. Kresse - from "There is a house in Holland" - The legend of Pinneke Proost - original film cell - (1943). 18 On 1 December 2010, Marten Toonder's cultural legacy (all the work that Marten Toonder created himself) was officially transferred by his heirs to the Literature Museum in Leiden and has since then been owned by the Dutch government. In November 2018, the archive of Marten Toonder Studios was donated to the Literature Museum in The Hague and the Eye Filmmuseum in Amsterdam. Due to the events described above, there is no chance that further original work from this estate, made by Marten Toonder himself and Marten Toonder Studios, will be offered “on the market”. "There is a house in Holland" was made in 1943 by Marten Toonder Studios as an advertisement (abbreviation) for Gnome genever from Distilleerderij Herman Jansen, Schiedam. Marten Toonder and Hans G. Kresse (Eric de Noorman's well-known artist), among others, worked on the realization of the commercial in 1943. Years ago, some original film cells from 1943 (!) Turned out to have been preserved. Unique, as celluloid was a valuable material at the time; cells were usually cleaned after use and reused for the next scene. This cell is one of those original movie cells made by Marten Toonder Studios in 1943. In the past 77 years, some small paint stains from Pinneke Proost have been lost. This cell from 1943 is completely authentic (not restored) and is still in good condition. A real, beautiful Toonderian gnome named Pinneke Proost.
