    Description

    "Symphony of the Stars" The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Scooby-Doo, and More Signed Limited Edition Cel 203/500 (Hanna-Barbera, 1988). This incredible, hand-painted, limited edition cel features forty-nine major characters from Hanna-Barbera cartoons, all in one glorious color image! It runs the gamut from Fred Flintstone conducting the symphony, to Winsome Witch on clarinet, and all points in between! On July 17th, 1989, TNT broadcast a star-studded TV special called A Yabba Dabba Doo Celebration -- 50 Years of Hanna-Barbera. It was hosted by Tony Danza and Annie Potts, with many live-action celebrities on screen as well as animated characters. The show was dedicated to Daws Butler, who had recently passed away. This also was the last film and TV project that Mel Blanc worked on, as he passed away just seven days before this special aired. The show had an animated segment that showed virtually every single Hanna-Barbera character playing in a symphony that Fred Flintstone conducted. This scene was so popular that a guide to all the characters was the first thing shown in the 1989 Ted Sennet book The Art of Hanna-Barbera -- 50 Years of Creativity. This massive cel is 21" x 40" in a glass-fronted frame of 47" x 30". Frame sold as-is. This edition sold out when Joe Barbera (1911 - 2006) and Bill Hanna (1910 - 2001) toured the country promoting one of animation's first limited edition cels. This is number 203/500, hand-signed by both the late Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera. To top it all off, the background is airbrush by hand! If H-B is your cup of tea, this one is for you. Very Good condition.
