    Fantastic Four "Danger in the Depths" Title Cel Setup with Background Layout Drawing (Hanna-Barbera, 1967). The first animated series based on the Marvel comic book Fantastic Four was done by Hanna-Barbera, with designs created by Alex Toth. This show premiered on 9/9/67 on ABC. This is the original hand-painted title lettering and original background layout drawing for the eleventh episode, "Dangers in the Depths," which ran on 11/18/67. It featured the Fantastic Four (Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Girl, Human Torch, and The Thing) doing battle with earthquake-causing villain, the Mole Man. This is a 12 field three-level original Title cel with the title on one level, copyright information on second level, and the Fantastic Four logo on a third level. The background is the original layout drawing used to make the cel for this setup. This Title cel was used in Ted Sennet's book The Art of Hanna-Barbera, on page 132. With only 20 episodes, Title cels from this show are considered extremely rare. Very Good condition.
