    Laverne and Shirley with Special Guest Star The Fonz "The Robot Recruit" Title Cel Setup and Painted Background (Hanna-Barbera, 1982). The live action TV series Laverne and Shirley made its way to Saturday morning animation with Laverne & Shirley in the Army, in 1981. Fonzie was added to the Laverne and Shirley cast as a mechanic in the army motor pool, with original actor Henry Winkler providing the voice ('ayyyy!). This is a rare hand-painted 12 field title cel for the "Robot Recruit" episode, which ran on 10/23/82; it was the sixth episode that season. Great hand-painted title cel with all three characters showcased. This is a 4-cel setup with a custom-made production background cel. Titles cels from these 1980s-era shows are considered extremely rare. Minor handling wear. Very Good condition.
