    Description

    Fruity Pebbles and Cocoa Pebbles Production Cel Setup and Key Master Background (Hanna-Barbera, 1971). Fruity Peebles and Cocoa Pebbles were introduced by Post Cereals in the fall of 1971. The animated commercials were produced by Hanna-Barbara's commercial division, which was overseen by Art Babbitt. This is a very early Fruity Pebbles production cel of Fred and Barney at breakfast table with a Fruity Pebbles cereal box in plain view. The characters measure approximately 4" tall on a a 12 field cel over its original hand-painted Key Master production background. This rare setup is signed by Bill Hanna (1910 - 2001) and Joe Barbera (1911 - 2006) who rarely signed commercial animation art. The piece comes with a Letter of Authenticity from the Art Babbitt estate and two matching animation drawings of Fred and Barney are included in the lot. Minor handling and wear. Condition is Very Good. From the Art Babbitt Archives.
