    Super Friends Superman Publicity Cel and Painted Production Background (Hanna-Barbera, c. 1970s). The Super Friends franchise began on 9/8/73 on ABC. It ran nine seasons over 13 years. This is an original 12 field hand-painted cel of Superman in a classic full flight pose. This was painted by the Hanna-Barbera Ink and Paint Department and used for all promotion and publicity purposes for this show: press kits, books, calendars, consumer products, and other uses. The cel is on a STOCK hand-painted production background from the H-B show The Harlem Globetrotters. This show premiered on 9/12/70 on CBS. This is a background that was used over and over for this show. The hand-painted production sky background works perfectly with our flying Man of Steel. Minor handling wear. Condition is Very Good.
