    Fred and Barney Meet the Thing Production Title Cel with Key Master Background (Hanna-Barbera, 1979). Thing Ring, do your thing! Here is a little piece of Marvel history. The Thing had twenty-six of his own episodes on this Flintstones show. The show followed the adventures of Benjy Grimm. This is the hand-painted title cel from the very first Thing episode called "The Picnic Panic." You can see this episode on YouTube. The show premiered the week of 9/8/79 on NBC. This is a great 4" image of the Thing, in an impressive 6-cel setup, on its hand-painted, Key Master background. Title cels of this quality are extremely rare. Condition is Fine.
