    The Flintstones "Barber Shop Quartet" Publicity Cel and Production Background (Hanna-Barbera, c. 1970s-80s). It is no secret that Bill Hanna was a big fan of Barber Shop Quartets. In fact the song "Bill Hanna, What a Guy" was written for him in barber shop quartet style. This is a great hand-painted Publicity cel of Fred and Barney with their fellow Water Buffalo Lodge members, singing as a barber shop quartet. This great cel was painted by the H-B Ink and Pant Department. The cel is on a hand-painted Flintstones production background and production overlay, done in Flintstones-style sponge painting so commonly used on their backgrounds. Nice images of 5" to 7". A few tiny specks of paint loss in hats, otherwise Very Good condition.
