    Fantastic Four Black Panther and the Thing Production Cel with Painted Background and Animation Drawing (Marvel Studios, 1995).
    Ben Grimm (the Thing) and T'Challa (the Black Panther) tussle in this original hand-painted production cel. This is from the episode that introduced the African King superhero, "Prey of the Black Panther," which first aired on 11/11/95. The combined image with both heroes measures approximately 4" x 4.5". The cel is placed over a hand-painted production background of a cave that is similar to one in the episode, but is from an unknown source. The matching animation drawing of the Thing and Black Panther, in graphite with great red and blue pencil highlights, is included. Both the drawing and cel have been hand-signed by the series' Supervising Producer, Tom Tataranowicz. Overall Very Good condition, with tape along the bottom edge of the cel, and minor handling wear.
