    Description

    Hanna-Barbera Goes to Kings Island Production Cels Setups Group of 2 (Hanna-Barbera, 1972). If you're into really rare Hanna-Barbera animation art this is the lot for you. Taft Broadcasting Corporation opened Kings Island Amusement Park just outside of Cincinnati, Ohio in the summer of 1972. TV Show's like The Partridge Family, The Brady Bunch and the Banana Splits all filmed at this amusement park which sported had an iconic Eiffel tower at its entrance. Hanna-Barbera's commercial division headed by Art Babbitt produced a series of animated television commercials promoting the park using the Hanna-Barbera characters, in a cross promotion with Taft. This is a very rare pair of hand-painted production cels from one of those Art Babbitt-directed commercials. First is a production cel setup of The Banana Splits, Yogi, and Scooby Doo around the park's Eiffel Tower over a blue production background. The Banana Splits seldom appeared in animated form, making this an extraordinarily rare piece. Also, in the lot is an overview cel of the park on a production background. Both show minor handling and border wear. Overall condition is Good. From the Art Babbitt Archives.
