    A Yabba-Dabba-Doo Celebration Concept Art Group of 4 (Hanna-Barbera, 1989). A full-blown TV special was shown on 7/17/89 on TNT to celebrate the 50-year partnership of Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera. It had a host of celebrities and featured many of their animated characters, covering their MGM years as well as Hanna-Barbera Studios. The show was hosted by Tony Danza and Annie Potts. This is a collection of rare art created during the production of this special, and comes to us from a longtime Hanna-Barbera Senior Executive. This collection includes a Joe Barbera rough sketch for the 50th Birthday logo on a print of the Symphony of the Stars; Joe Barbera's personal OK initials on a print of the final logo for approval purposes; a marker-colored print of one of the logos used for the special; and a test silk-screened "50 Years of Hanna-Barbera" cel. Minor handling and edge wear; overall Very Good condition.
