    Description

    The Beatles Saturday Morning Series Concept Drawing by Joe Cal Cagno (King Features Syndicate, 1965). An extremely rare early development piece of concept artwork created for the fondly-remembered Saturday Morning Beatles series, by artist Joe Cal Cagno. The show premiered on 9/25/65, and was a massive hit, with new episodes running for three seasons (and in reruns for a fourth season, which ended in 1969). It featured two episodes, plus two "sing-along" song segments per episode; initial sponsors were the A. C. Gilbert Company (Erector Sets), Quaker Oats, and the Mars Candy Company. Joe Cal Cagno was interviewed in 1995, stating that he was one of the first to do character development designs of the four Beatles for animation. This early drawing is inscribed, "One of first pre-production, R & D drawings for KFS Beatles Cartoon Series by Storyboard Artist Joe Cal Cagno." Ink and watercolor on paper. Matted with an opening size of 11" x 9", and framed with glass for an overall size of 21" x 17". Very Good condition.
