    Tom and Jerry with Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera Publicity Cel and Photo (Hanna-Barbera, 1990). While at MGM, Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera directed approximately 114 theatrical cartoons starring Tom and Jerry, winning an unprecedented seven Academy Awards. This is a rare hand-painted Publicity cel painted by the Hanna-Barbera Ink and Paint Department for the 50th Anniversary of Tom and Jerry's partnership with Bill and Joe. This would have been used for all press and publicity purposes. Great cel of Tom and Jerry placed over a terrific photo of Bill and Joe offering handshakes for the big 50th. Overall cel is 12" x 14" with images of 2" and 5". This is directly from a longtime H-B executive's personal archive. Fine condition.
