    Description

    The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas Dink Mixer Maquette (Universal, 2000). Based on the Hanna-Barbera animated sitcom, this prequel to director Brian Levant's 1994 hit feature film The Flintstones, documented the early days of Fred Barney, Betty and Wilma and their vacation to Rock Vegas. Just like in the cartoon series this depiction of a modern-stone-age was replete with an array of dino-powered conveniences. In this lot is an original maquette of one of the kooky appliances created for the film. The aardvark like creature is a drink-mixer that was actually produced and filmed, but cut from the movie. The wonderfully detailed figure measures 11" x 6" and hand painted. It's mounted to a 12" x 12" x .5" black wood base which bears an embossed. Jim Henson's Creature Shop badge in the corner. This is a one-of-a-kind piece by the legendary creative group know for their work on Fraggle Rock, A Muppet Christmas Carol and the TV series Dinosaurs to name a few. The lot represents a rare opportunity to own a unique piece of art from this now shuttered Jim Henson Creature Shop location. Minor handling and condition is Very Good.
