    Defenders of the Earth "Like Father, Like Daughter?" Title Cel and Key Master Background (Marvel Productions, 1986). Three classic King Features Syndicate comic strip stars were featured in this series -- Flash Gordon, The Phantom, and Mandrake the Magician, as they teamed to fight Ming the Merciless and his attempted conquest of Earth. There were 65 episodes produced, which have recently been running on Pluto TV. Here's the hand-painted 12 field title cel for episode #22, "Like Father, Like Daughter?" which was first shown on 10/7/86. The lettering is hand-painted from behind, and the background is hand-painted/airbrushed. There are some paint chips and tiny flakes missing from some of the letters, but this is hardly noticeable except up close. Good condition.
