    Super Chicken Painted Backgrounds Group of 2 (Jay Ward, 1967). "When there is no one else to turn to... call for Super Chicken!" Super Chicken was part of the George of the Jungle Show on ABC. This is a pair of 12 field, hand-painted production backgrounds from "The Geezer" which was the eighth episode of the first season, premiering on 10/28/67. It took place in "Yellowbone National Park," home of a geyser called "Old Faceful." These backgrounds appear when Super Chicken mistakes an oil gusher for the geyser. The first background is when Super Chicken exclaims to his sidekick, "We need a car wash, Fred!" It's painted with gouache and colored pencil on background board. The second background is the oil gusher. Both were painted by artist Sam Clayberger and are marked BG 55 and BG 60. All production artwork from any Jay Ward cartoon is a rare find! This lot contains two hand-painted production backgrounds! Condition is Very Good.
